How to get to the TIB Technik/Naturwissenschaften (Science/Technology) site
By public transport
Those arriving by train at Hannover Central Station should take the underground to Kröpcke and then change to suburban railway line 4 (in the direction of "Garbsen") or line 5 (in the direction of "Stöcken"). Both routes will take you to the library in around 8 minutes (stop "Leibniz Universität").
Note: For suburban railway journeys involving a maximum of 3 stops, KurzstreckenTickets can be obtained from all DB and GVH ticket machines. All timetables and additional information can also be gained from the Großraum-Verkehr Hannover (GVH) website (under the section: Lines & Timetables).
Local public transport stops in the vicinity:
- Suburban railway lines 4 or 5, stop "Leibniz Universität".
- Suburban railway lines 6 or 11, stop "Christuskirche".
- Bus lines 100 / 200 ("Ringroad line"), stops "Königsworther Platz" or "Christuskirche".
Please note that Hannover introduced a low-emission zone on 1 January 2008, prohibiting the entry of motor vehicles with high particulate matter emissions. TIB Technik/Naturwissenschaften (Science/Technology), TIB Conti-Campus, TIB Sozialwissenschaften (Social Sciences) and TIB Geschichte7Religionswissenschaft (History/Religious Studies) are located within the low-emission zone. Only vehicles with a green (Euro 4) label may enter this zone.
Those arriving by plane should take the S-Bahn suburban line S 5 to Hannover Central Station (which will take around 12 minutes). From there, see above. A taxi ride from the airport to the library takes around 20 minutes.
