Where to stay

If you want to stay overnight you have two options:

  1. You can stay close to the computer science campus in Stellingen.
    • Advantage: you can walk by foot to our building.
    • Disadvantage: boring neighborhood, no restaurants.
    • E.g.: Linder-Hotel (near the zoo) is about 10 min. walk from the department (or 2 bus stops) but it’s not near the center.

    To find hotels close to the campus, you might want to use google maps.

  2. you can stay somewhere in the city center.
    • Advantage: nice places to stay, go out and have fun.
    • Disadvantage: you have to use public transport to come to the computer science campus (depending on where you are, this takes about 30 min or so).
    • E.g.: Grand Elysee is near the Damm Tor Area (also called Rotherbaum).
    • E.g.: Hotel Wagner has a very good ratio of cost/quality, 3 stars, good standards but not much extras.

    If you choose this option, consider being located nearby the subway line U2.
