Airport to Main Station
From the Airport Hannover (Code HAJ) take the S-Bahn number 5 (direction Paderborn Hbf, Hameln or Bad Pyrmont ) and get off at Main Station (Hannover Hbf). The train leaves every hour at minutes 6 and 36. The ride takes 17 minutes. Tickets are available from vending machines at the platform.
Main Station to University
It takes about 20 minutes to walk from the main station to the main building at the Welfengarten (see this map). Alternatively, you might take the underground to the university. Leave the Main Station in the direction of the main entrance (low track numbers) on the basement level and go straight ahead towards metro station Kröpcke (approx. 300 m). Take number 4 (direction Garbsen) or 5 (direction Stöcken) and get off at the (third) stop Universität in front of the main building. You only need a short-range ticket (Kurzstreckenticket).
