Public transport


Getting around in Bielefeld is easy. The city is serviced by our local operator moBiel - with four tram lines (and short stretches of underground!) and many more bus routes - up until about 1:00 AM. Thereafter - or before if you wish - taxis will cover the rest.

moBiel
  • All tram lines (1, 2, 3 and 4) pass through the Hauptbahnhof (Main Station) - and stop at Jahnplatz, the main transportation hub in the city's center (pink pin marker on the map below - there's an information office there); so there's little you can do wrong!
  • Tram line number 1 (blue line on the map below) - direction Senne, when coming from the Main Station and city's center - is the one servicing our venue (green house on the map).
  • Many bus services stop at Jahnplatz - check scheduling below if you need to use them.
  • For detailed maps see top right of the page for links.

Schedule
See the instructions below and then follow the link.


Costs
  • Single tickets cost 2.10€ for longer trips and 1.50€ for most all city center routes. You can buy four by the roll for 7.20€ and 5.20€ respectively. 
  • If you're taking the tram, you must buy your ticket in advance from vending machines clearly visible on or before platforms  - and then stamp them on the train.
  • If your taking the bus, you can buy the ticket from the driver on board. 

Taxis


Taxis are beige and they're always from Mercedes!
  • You can try flagging down a taxi - sometimes that works.
  • You can get one a any of a large number of drop-offs.
  • You can call one of the following numbers:
    • 97 111
    • 44 43 66
    • 6 51 51
Costs
Taxis cost 5.80€ for the first two kilometers (daytime), thereafter 1.60€ per further kilometer.
  • That means for any trip from the Bielefeld Main Station to one of the inner city hotel's you'll pay no more than the minimum charge;
  • the same goes from the hotel's to the venue.
  • For the hotel located furthest from the city's center the charge would be aroung 16€.
