CSI Frankfurt 2020

plan your stay

One place for all relevant information regarding your visit to Frankfurt this June, from accommodation to public transportation.

 

Glinting with glass, steel and concrete skyscrapers, Frankfurt-on-the-Main (pronounced ‘mine’) is unlike any other German city. The focal point of a conurbation of 5.5 million inhabitants, ‘Mainhattan’ is a high-powered finance and business hub, home to one of the world’s largest stock exchanges and the gleaming headquarters of the European Central Bank, and famously hosts some of the world's most important trade fairs, attracting thousands of business travellers.
Yet at its heart, Frankfurt is an unexpectedly traditional and charming city, with half-timbered buildings huddled in its quaint medieval Altstadt (old town), cosy apple-wine taverns serving hearty regional food, village-like neighbourhoods filled with outdoor cafes, boutiques and street art, and beautiful parks, gardens and riverside paths. The city's cache of museums is second in Germany only to Berlin’s, and its nightlife and entertainment scenes are bolstered by a spirited student population.

  • Accommodation

    Please keep in mind that September is a busy month, which means accommodation tends to decrease as CSI approaches. Participants are strongly advised to ensure their room reservation in advance.

    CSI has rooms reserved in different hotels with rates starting at € 100 per night. Participants are strongly advised to ensure their room reservation in advance, as the set room rates depend on availability and on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Transportation

    Frankfurt Central Station is only a few hundred metres away from the Congress Center, and the underground station there provides fast direct access.

    • With the underground line 4: board a train heading in the direction of Bockenheimer Warte, get off at ‘Festhalle/Messe’ and follow the signs to the Congress Center.
    • With tram lines 16 and 17: board a tram heading in the direction of Ginnheim/Rebstockbad, get off at ‘Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage’ (fourth stop).
    • On foot: ten minutes from Düsseldorfer Strasse via Platz der Republik and Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage. The pyramidal top of the Messeturm tower will help you to find your bearings.
