The conference centre is marked with the (A) sign in the map. To access the Siemens premises there are two gates (appearing yellow in the map): the north gate on the right of the (A) and the south gate next to the U/S-Bahn station, about 100m away. The latter one is preferred if you arrive by metro.
- Public Transportation
Munich has an excellent public transport system. For single trips it is recommended to buy the “Streifenkarte” (stripe ticket, 10 stripes for 12.50€). Use 2 stripes for one travel within the city, from/to the airport you need 8 stripes (fold the needed numbers of stripes and then stamp them).
Another option is a day ticket, which costs 6.00 € (“Single-Tageskarte, Innenraum”) for unlimited travel within the city on a single calendar day or 11.70 € (“Single-Tageskarte, Gesamtnetz”) if you want to use it from/to the airport.
All tickets must be stamped before entering the train (on first use for a day ticket). Tickets can be bought at all U/S-Bahn stations from vending machines or at kiosks.
Map of metro
- Getting there from the Airport
On arrival follow the green (S) sign to go to the suburban railway. There are two lines S8 and S1 that can be taken (S8 is 10 min. faster) to go to the city. Commute to the metro line U5 direction “Neuperlach Süd” at one of the following stations: Ostbahnhof, Karlsplatz (Stachus) or Hauptbahnhof (main train station). The trip takes about 50 min. in total. Using a taxi takes about the same time and costs about 70 €.

Cultural Events & Happenings
The capital of Bavaria is home to many international and regional institutions, major universities, museums and theaters. Its numerous architectural highlights, famous sports events, exhibitions and conferences attract millions of tourists every year.
Undoubtedly, the city’ most popular event is Oktoberfest – the biggest beer festival in the world. In 2013 Munich hosted more than 6 million people during the event. This year, the festival will take place shortly after the UCAAT and therefore we suggest booking your hotel early.
