Conference

Address: Veranstaltungszentrum, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Universitätsstraße 150, 44801 Bochum

Google Maps: Link to the conference building

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 ("VZ" or "Veranstaltungszentrum"). You can find parking spaces for your car directly under the conference location (University Center/"Universität Mitte", parking space P9). Otherwise, you can take the subway ("U-Bahn") U35 to the station "Ruhr-Universität". From the station, it is a 5-10 minutes' walk 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 "SkyTrain" from the airport to the train station "Düsseldorf Flughafen Bahnhof". Afterward, you should take a train to "Bochum Hauptbahnhof" (aka. "Bochum Hbf"). From there we recommend taking a taxi to the conference center (about 10 euros). Otherwise, you can take the subway ("U-Bahn") U35 to the station "Ruhr-Universität". From the station, it is a 5-10 minutes' walk to the conference building.

Please notice:

  • Please pay for the SkyTrain (about 2 euros).
  • To get your train tickets, you can use a ticket machine after the SkyTrain. They allow you to choose English for the UI and you can (often) pay with your credit cards. Please be sure to bring enough cash (euro) with you, because it is possible that the ticket machine does not accept your credit card. The ticket price should be about 2 euros (SkyTrain) and 20 euros (train).
  • Please do not forget to validate your train ticket with one of the stamp machines. Otherwise, it is not valid.

Accommodation

We do not offer any hotel room reservation service. From our experience, it is cheaper to use a 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 central 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.
