Get ticket pricing info

  • Starting at Central Station you stay within zone A
  • The airport is in zone B so need a AB ticket
  • From the Central Station
    • Go either
      • by foot to the LRT/subway station Kröpcke (about 250 m). For this purpose go south (small platform numbers) and go straight along the “wide” street (Bahnhofstraße). The square you are heading to is called Kröpcke. Follow the “U” sign to the LRT/subway station
      • Use the LRT/subway station within back of the Central Station (high platform numbers). Take any line heading south (smaller platform numbers)
    • Take the line 4 (Garbsen) or 5 (Stöcken) (yellow colour coded lines)
    • Dismount at the station Wilhelm-Busch-Museum/Schneiderberg
    • Cross the street at the intersection where the street is perpendicular to the tracks (Schneiderberg)
    • Go straight about 400 m until the street crosses the street Appelstr.
    • The three storey building on the left contains the ITP (top floor)
  • From the Airport
    • Take the train (“S-Bahn”). Line number 5 (the only line departing here)
    • Leave the train at the stop Nordstadt.
    • Upon leaving the railway station turn right and continue to the next traffic light (approx. 200 m) and cross the street.
    • Turn right into Haltenhoffstraße and continue to the next street on the left hand side (Schneiderberg).
    • Walk along the street Schneiderberg for about 300 meters until the intersection with Appelstraße on your right. Just before the intersection, you find on your right a present-day 3-storey building containing the ITP on the top floor.
    • In total this takes about 20 to 25 minutes after leaving the airport station.
