Please note that most parking lots in Bamberg's city and around the conference location are for short term parking or residents only. Thus we must discourage traveling within and also to Bamberg by car. However, if you decide to travel by car we suggest either using the underground parking at Georgendamm (near the conference location) or "Park and Ride Breitenau" and then via shuttle service (Line 931) to central bus station. From there take the bus (Line 904, 906, 915) to "Markusplatz".
