Local Traffic Service

You can use the KVG bus lines to get to the lower campus of Kiel University (exit at stop “Leibnizstaße”).

Students accommodated at Maritim Hotel can enter at bus stop “Roonstraße” which is within 2 minutes walking distance from the hotel. There are different options to get to Leibnizstraße 1 from there:

  • Take line 41 (direction “Tannenberg”), at stop “Steenbeker Weg” transfer to line 62 (direction “Schiefe Horn”), exit at stop “Leibnizstraße”.
  • Take line 42 (direction “Rungholtplatz”), at stop “Torfende” transfer to line 61 (direction “Aalborgring”), exit at stop “Leibnizstraße”.

The tour takes about 20 minutes by bus. We recommend to take line 41 at 8:31 to arrive at seminar building LS1 until 9:00.

From LS1 you can get to the upper campus, where the cafeteria and the multimedia lab are located, with most bus lines departing from stop “Leibnizstraße” (6, 61, 81) in less than 5 minutes. Exit at stop “Universität” in front of the tower building.

The main train station (bus stop “Hauptbahnhof”) and the university are connected directly by a number of bus lines (50, 60S, 61/62, 81, 91) in less than 20 minutes.

See also the KVG website for timetables and route maps. The standard price for a one-way ticket is 2,60 € incl. transfer).

Since the bus route from Maritim hotel to Leibnizstraße 1 is a bit unfavorable, you could also take a taxi in groups of 3–8 instead (ca. 12–18 €) which takes about 12 minutes. Sporting aces can also get there by foot in about 40 minutes.
