Visiting our Faculty

By train and/or bus

The City of Mainz has one main and multiple other train stations. Schedule information is provided by Deutsche Bahn.or the RMV (Rhein-Main-Verkehrsbund). The easiest way to come to Mainz University is to get off the train or bus at Mainz Main Station ("Hauptbahnhof") and take one of the bus lines to the university.

For your ride from Mainz Main Station to the university, you should buy a so-called "Kurzstrecken-Ticket" which is valid within three bus stops. This "short-distance ticket" is cheaper than a normal bus ticket. You can buy it directly from the bus driver or use an automatic ticket machine. Information on public transport within and around Mainz is provided by Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV) and Mainzer Verkehrsgesellschaft (MVG).
