Getting around in Karlsruhe

The fastest and easiest way to get around in Karlsruhe (other than walking) is the tram. The tram station "Kronenplatz" or "Kronenplatz (Fritz-Erler-Strasse)" is closest to the math building.

On the day of your arrival, you will need a ticket for the tram. You can either buy this as an extension of your long distance rail ticket from German Rail (ask for a City mobil-extension when buying the train ticket to Karlsruhe at a counter) or at one of the vending machines at the tram stations.
