Directions to the venue

The Griebnitzsee campus is located between Potsdam and Berlin and is directly accessible from both via the S7 train line:

  • From Potsdam Hauptbahnhof (Hbf), take the S7 direction Ahrensfelde (Berlin) from platform 6 or 7 (duration: 6 minutes).
  • From Berlin Hbf, take the S7 direction Potsdam from platform 16 (duration: 32 minutes)
  • From Griebnitzsee Bhf, trains towards Potsdam leave from platform 1 and towards Berlin from platform 2.
The same line also serves several other train stations in Potsdam and Berlin. The stations and platforms where the S-Bahn trains run are usually indicated by the green sign. The S7 trains run every 10 minutes between 05:00 - 21:00, and every 20 minutes after 21:00; on working days, trains run until around 00:30, while the service is non-stop from Friday morning to Sunday evening. You will find a timetable of the line for all stations here. Note that after 21:00 some trips between Griebnitzsee and Berlin may include a brief stopover at Grunewald Station.
