    Directions: RuhrSec will be held at the Ruhr University Bochum (RUB). The conference location is directly located under the cafeteria/Mensa in our event center (German: Veranstaltungszentrum). You can find parking slots for your cars directly under the conference location (University Center/ Universität Mitte, parking deck P9). Otherwise you can use the train station (U35 - "Ruhr-Universität"). From the train station, it is a five minutes walk to get to the conference building.

  • Flight and Train Information

    The closest airport is "Düsseldorf Flughafen" (DUS). From DUS, the shortest and fastest way to get to Bochum is via train. Please take the "Sky Train" from the airport to the railway station "Düsseldorf Flughafen". After that you should drive to "Bochum Hauptbahnhof" (aka. "Bochum Hbf."). From there we recommend to take a taxi driver to the conference center (about 10 Euro). Otherwise you can take the underground station (U-Bahn) train U35 to "Ruhr Universität Bochum".

    Please notice:

    • Please pay for the sky train (a few euros).
    • To get your tickets, you can use a ticket machine after the sky train. They allow you to choose English for the UI and you can pay (often) with your credit cards. Please also take money (Euro) with you if credit cards are not accepted. The ticket price should be something around €3 (SkyTrain) and €20 (train).
    • Please do not forget to stamp your train ticket with one of the stamp machines. Otherwise it is not valid/used.

  • Accommodation

    We do not offer any hotel room reservation service. From our experience, it is cheaper to use common hotel booking portals instead of booking the rooms directly at the hotel or with a reservation code.

    Directly in the heart of Bochum and near the train station, we recommend two hotels:

    Ibis has renewed their hotel a few years ago and it is, depending on the view, sufficient to spend a few nights in it. More luxury is given in the Mercure Hotel, which was a Park Inn hotel in the past. Both hotels are not far away from Bochum's famous Bermuda Dreieck (with a lot of good bars and German beer).
