Arrival with plane at Leipzig-Halle airport or train at
Leipzig main station
After arrival at the airport look for signs to the Airport
train station. If you feel it's a long walk - then you are on the
right track! About every 30 minutes there is a direct train connection
to the main station ("Hauptbahnhof") in the city center.
You can buy your ticket
either at a ticket counter (still in the airport building) just
before you move down to the tracks, or downstairs at a ticket
machine. Tickets for the regional trains ("RE") - you must punch
your ticket next to the ticket machine
before entering the RE - are also valid
for changing to the tram at Hauptbahnhof (at least within the
city limits). Long distance trains ("IC"), which also every now
and then connect the airport and the main train station, require
a special, more expensive ticket (which furthermore is not
valid on the trams from Hauptbahnhof).
From the main train station ("Hauptbahnhof") you
can take the tram no. 16 to our new office building at
"Brüderstr. 16" (leave at stop "Bayrischer Platz") or to
the lecture hall at Linnestr. 5 (leave the next stop "Johannisstr." and
walk through the Chemistry building to enter the physics building through
one of the back doors)
Since Summer 2012 the Institute for Theoretical physics is located
at "Brüderstr. 16" where you should enter through a "yellow door"
at the back side of the building (in the ground floor is a kindergarten
called "Einsteinchen" whose entrance is at the front side ...).
The secretaries' offices are at the first floor opposite to the
elevator. You may also try to contact
Wolfhard Janke (room 207, phone (0341) 97 32 725).
