Arriving by plane at Hannover Airport

It is really easy to reach Hannover central station by public transportation. Simply take the train (S-Bahn) line number 5. This train is commuting every 30 minutes from the airport to Hannover central station and the other way around. The ride is a pretty short one; you will reach Hannover central station after six stops, so it will take you less than 20 minutes.

A single ticket (valid for two zones) costs €3.10. Please note that this ticket is also valid for the street cars that bring you from the central station to the hotel or to the conference place. 

If you like movies, here is a link to a very instructive video to bring you to Hannover. Simply stop watching the video at the point you are reaching Hannover central station, otherwise you will end up at the Hannover exhibition halls:
