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! Every 30 minutes there is a direct local "S-Bahn"
train connection to the main station ("Hauptbahnhof") and
3 further underground stops in the city center where the "S-Bahn"
operates as our new "Metro" (since December 2013). For both,
the Institute for Theoretical Physics in "Brüderstr. 16"
and the lecture hall in the Experimental Physics building in
"Linnéstr. 5", the most convenient stop is "Bayerischer Bahnhof"
at "Bayrischer Platz".
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 "S-Bahn" and other regional trains ("RE")
must be punched next to the ticket machine
before entering the train. The tickets are also valid
for changing to a tram at Hauptbahnhof or other stops in the city center
(at least within the city limits). Long distance trains ("IC"), which
also every now and then connect the airport with 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 (in direction to "Loessnig")
to our new office building at "Brüderstr. 16" (leave at stop
"Bayerischer Bahnhof") or to the lecture hall at Linnéstr. 5
(leave the next stop "Johannisallee" 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" (» on the Google
satellite view it is the building in front of "Brüderstr./Turnerstr.")
where you should enter through a "yellow door"
at the back side of the building in the yard (in the ground floor is a
kindergarten called "Einsteinchen" (!) whose entrance is at the front side ...).
The secretaries' offices are on the first floor opposite to the
elevator (rooms 111/112, phone (0341) 97 32 420/430/440). You may also
try to contact Wolfhard Janke whose office is on the second floor (room 207,
phone (0341) 97 32 421).
