Coming from Airport Frankfurt
For arrivals from Frankfurt airport, there are several options for you.
1. The best way is by TLS Shuttle Service which picks you up at the airport and drops you off at our location. This is the most convenient, especially if you have a lot of luggage versus carrying it on the train and public transit. They also transport you if your flight is late or early. We are happy to make the arrangements for you and even pre-pay, then you just reimburse us when you arrive. They charge Euro 35 per person, per way.
2. Take the Luftthansa shuttle van that takes you to the city centre, then take a taxi or public transport. The shuttle charges Euros 23 and a taxi is approximately Euros 12. Shuttle leaves on the hour every hour, but if your flight is late your reservation is not carried forward and you are on standby for available seating.
3. Take the train to Heidelberg. There is a train station within Frankfurt Airport, Terminal One Upper level. From there you take a train to Mannheim Station, then change to the S3 train heading towards Bruchsal, Do not exit the train in Heidelberg main train station, but one station further south (1 minute more) to Heidelberg/Kirchheim/Rohrbach. From there, walk to our location 3 blocks south. Approximate cost is Euros 28. We don’t recommend this option because carrying luggage can be awkward when the trains are busy, and also there is only a short window of 4 minutes to catch the connecting S3 train, plus you have to go up and down stairs to the train platforms.
4. Take a taxi directly from the airport. Costly if alone but good value if there are 3 or 4 in your group.
 
Coming from the south on Autobahn A5 by motorbike/car
Exit Autobahn 5 at junction no. 38 to Highway 535, Heidelberg/Schwetzingen, and go towards Heidelberg. Within 1 km, stay in the right lane and take the first exit to Leimen. Take the first offramp (500 metres) to Kircheim, that ends with a traffic light at the top of the ramp - turn left. In 50 metres you come to the first set of traffic lights turn right and keep on going until you reach the next traffic lights (There is a pizza store on your right corner). Stay on that road as it turns right through the lights, you are now on Hegenich Strasse, then continue straight for 5 blocks until the road you are on ends at the train tracks. Turn right and go one block. You will now see our location on the right-hand side - just look for the BMW sign on the container in the front parking area.
 
Coming from downtown Heidelberg by motorbike/car
From downtown Heidelberg, leave the city towards Schwetzingen and Autobahn 5- Karlsruhe/Basel. You will cross Montpellier-Bridge which leads over the railway tracks. Keep on going straight on this street, Speyerer Straße, for about 3.5 kilometers. On the right-hand side you will pass a Burger King and then an OMV gas station on your right. Make a left turn at the next set of traffic lights, where you will see an Esso and Holiday Inn. Go down to the first set of traffic lights (mattress store and suntanning salon on the corners) and make a left turn, then continue straight for 5 blocks until it ends at the train tracks. BE CAREFUL, cars coming from the right intersecting streets have right-of-way. Turn right and go one block. You will now see our location on the right-hand side - just look for the BMW banner flying in front of the property.
 
Public Transportation
To our place to/from Heidelberg's pedestrian zone: Take tram no. 26 towards station Kirchheim Friedhof. The ride takes only a few minutes, the tram stop is called Odenwald Straße. You will have just past a Post Office on your left and at the stop you’ll see a Heidelberg Volksbank and a Riegeler bakery. Also this is a stop where you exit the doors on the left, not the right like all other stops. If you miss getting off, the next stop (Kirchheim Rathaus) is also okay. From there, walk back on the street that runs just next to but below the street of the tram, called Hegenich Strasse. Look for a restaurant called Pizza Europa at the start of the street. It is only 5 blocks and it ends at the train tracks. Turn right and go one block. You will now see our location on the right-hand side - just look for the BMW banner flying in front of the property.
 
To our place from the Heidelberg main train station
1. Take bus no. 33 towards Emmertsgrund and get off at station S-Bahn Kirchheim/Rohrbach. The ride takes only 18 minutes. Hardtstrasse is the street running perpendicular right under the bridge on the west side. Come down the stairs or take the elevator and walk south 3 blocks. You will now see our location on the right-hand side - just look for the BMW banner flying in front of the property. Or, the other option is...
2. Take either the S3 or S4 train towards Karlsruhe. It is the first stop, called Heidelberg Kirchheim/Rohrbach and takes just 3 minutes. Once you exit the train, Hardtstrasse is right in front of you. Walk south 3 blocks.

Public Transit Rates from January 1st, 2008:
Single ticket: 2.30 Euro good for 75 minutes
24 hour ticket, for 1 person: 5.50 Euro
24 hour ticket Plus, for up to 5 persons: 10.00 Euro
 
The 24 hour tickets are valid for 24 hours from the time of validation, Monday through Friday. If the validation takes place on a Saturday, it is also valid on Sunday. If the following Monday is a holiday, it is also valid on Monday, e.g. on the Easter-weekend (a 24 hour ticket validated on Saturday is then also valid on Sunday + Monday). This is a good deal for visiting the city and/or if you are staying in the city for two days, as you can ride freely and hop on/hop off, and it is 24 hours from the time you first use it. For example, if you arrive in Heidelberg in the afternoon, you might want to take a lovely stroll in the historic centre and enjoy a dinner, but then you can use the ticket again the next morning to do more sightseeing or some shopping.
