Venue and Arrival

The spring school will take place at


"Schloss Lübbenau"
Schlossbezirk 6

D-03222 Lübbenau/Spreewald


The venue lies in Spreewald near Berlin. (For a map please click here).


The default procedure is to arrive at Lübbenau on Sunday (March 4) in the late afternoon and to leave on Thursday (March 8) after the last lecture (at about 1 pm). Workshop participants leave on Friday (March 9) afternoon.


Note: Due to unexpected short-term construction works on the weekend (March 3/4) there is no S-Bahn service between Berlin Alexanderplatz and Berlin Warschauer Straße. This implies that there are no direct local trains (except one at 14:30) from Berlin main station to Lübbenau. A possible solution is to take local trains from Berlin main station to Berlin Ostkreuz and take a local train (RB24 or RE2) to Lübbenau from there. Further details will be send via mail to the participants.


By plane: The nearest airport is Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SXF). From there, take a local train (RB22) to Königs-Wusterhausen and switch there to a local train (RB24 or RE2) to Lübbenau/Spreewald. If you arrive at Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL) take an express bus (TXL) to Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Main station) and take a local train from there, cf. below.

See for timetables and bookings (includes all operators).

Note: The trains also stop in a town called 'Lübben (Spreewald)' which is easily mistaken for the proper venue 'Lübbenau/Spreewald'.
