By Public Transport – by train and tram or bus
Please schedule your trip via the individual journey planners of DB Bahn and Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV) – following the link and button below and accomplish your planning with the locally experienced indications here: At the main railway station in Darmstadt, use the exit at the east side of the station (Ausgang Ost). In front of you, you will find a bus and tram stop which is frequented by the bus lines H, K, L:

as well as the tram lines 2 and 3:

All lines stop at your destination stop downtown: Schloss – it is the fourth stop. Only the bus line L carries you a little bit closer to your destination at its fifth stop: Jugendstilbad.

The bus is the quickest option and takes about 25 minutes to reach Darmstadt (Station: Kongresszentrum). It does not pay off to take a train which costs EUR 7,30 (standard rate) but more than doubles your travel time. From Darmstadt Kongresszentrum you can reach Rundeturmstraße 12 within five minutes by walking.
