Linux-Kongress 2005 Location and Accomodation


A company named Public Scout has put together a list of hotels near the Kongress location. You can order them directly via their webpage.


Linux-Kongress 2005 will take place in the main building of the University of Hamburg, Edmund-Siemers-Allee 1, D-20146 Hamburg.


Parking is sparse since it's close to the city of Hamburg and the students coming by car are filling up the remaining space. Rather avoid coming by car.

There are parking lots with meters at Mittelweg, if you're lucky you find free lots ar Schüterstraße oder Moorweidenstraße. You can also leave your car at the "CCH Tiefgarage". It's a 4 minute walk to the Uni Campus from there. It's according to our info 13 Euros per day, 1.60 Euro per hour.


If you're coming by train the "Dammtorbahnhof" is just 2 minutes by foot to the conference place. If you arrive by train try to make sure it arrives at Dammtorbahnhof (Hamburg has main 3-4 railway stations). Otherwise get off at main station (Hauptbahnhof), leave the building of the station to the south and hop on the S31, S21 or S11. It's only one stop. (Enjoy the view over the Binnen and Außen Alster ;-) )


Hamburgs airport still doesn't have a train connection. If you don't want to take a cab, you have to take either bus 26 to Hindenburgstraße and change to Bus 109 which takes you to Dammtor. Or take the same bus, get off at Alsterdorf and change into U1 (underground train). Both rides take ~30 minutes and cost 2.40 Euros. Bus 26 departs just in front of terminal 4 at the ground level (departure level).

Public Transport

Generally public transport is a very good alternative to get around in Hamburg. Apart from the S-Bahn mentioned above there's a good connection to Dammtor with bus number 4, 5, 109 and also with U1 (Stephanplatz). There's info on the schedules available as well as an info with the lines (click on "Netzpläne" and you can get different maps as PDF for different transport media).
