Directions (From Cologne Central Station) to Building C2, Room 008

From Köln Main Station: tickets for the subway (U-Bahn) can be bought from vending machines on the track or on board the train (coins only, CityTicket1b 2,60€). Take U-Bahn line 16 or 18 in direction Neumarkt/Barbarossaplatz/Bonn to the stop Neumarkt. There, you change to U-Bahn line 9, in direction Sülz. To change in Neumarkt you have to go out of the subway to the surface line (still called U-bahn): Line 9 stops in Neumarkt square. The stop where you reach us is called 'Universität'.
From the U-Bahn stop 'Universität': you proceed in the same direction of the train and you immediately reach the Universitätsstraße. Turn right, cross the traffic lights and proceed ca. 200m to Albertus Magnus Platz. Cross the Albertus Magnus Platz, go past the first building on your left. Now you will walk a wide footpath between two big Buildungs. Walk straight on and you will reach Building C2 on your left, which is a provisional Container. Enter the Building and follow the floor to the end to reach Room 008, in which RED 2014 takes place.
