CUG'98 Night Pass


Note: June 11 is Corpus Christi Day and a public holiday in Baden-Württemberg! The CUG Conference Office will not be open.


A valid passport is required for travel to Europe and between countries once here. Please check with your travel agent or your local German consulate to determine if you need a visum and for information on how to obtain one. For E.C. residents a national ID is sufficient.


Most of the attendees will arrive at the Stuttgart International Airport. Delta Air Lines fly non stop from Atlanta and New York to Stuttgart. Other airlines connect through London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zürich and others.

At the Stuttgart Airport  we recommend taking the suburbian railways (S2 and S3) which bring the passangers to and from the main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) in Stuttgart. Trains leave the airport approximately every 15 minutes and the trip takes ca. 27 minutes. You buy your ticket at an automatic ticket machine in the airport for your trip to the Hauptbahnhof. It costs DM 4,60. On arriving at the Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof, we suggest that you take a taxi to your hotel. All three hotels are downtown and are a short distance from the railway station.The  taxi fare from Stuttgart Airport to Stuttgart downtown is approximately DM 50,-.

While we recommend using the suburban railway to get to Stuttgart from the airport, rental cars are also available. Two of several car rental companies at the Stuttgart Airport are:

Avis Autovermietung, Tel. +49-(0)711-948.4451

Hertz  Autovermietung, Tel. +49-(0)711-948.4339

Stuttgart is well equipped with public transport services. In the City, these are underground city railways, trams, and buses. Your Conference registration packet will include a three day ticket for the Stuttgarter Straßenbahn and buses - VVS. This ticket is valid for one person for three consecutive days, including the first day of use. You may  buy additional tickets in your  hotel. More information about the VVS will be included in your conference registration packet.


German currency is (still) the Deutsche Mark (DM). Currency can be changed and traveler's checks can be cashed in banks which are generally open Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Thursday to 5:30 p.m. Exchange offices are open every day at all major railway stations, at airports and at border crossing points.


The standard voltage in Germany is 230 volts, 50 cycles. Bring an adapter plug for use in electrical outlets.


Smoking is not allowed in conference locations (except outside).

Special Assistance

Session rooms for the Stuttgart CUG Conference are located on several floors in the KKL and are accessible by stairs or elevators. If you need special assistance, please provide details on the Conference Registration Form under the "Special requirements" section.


Stuttgart is situated in the South of Germany, and the climate is semicontinental, making it is hard to tell what the weather will be like. Although the month of June is usually  a nice summer month with sunny weather and comfortable temperature 18 to 24° C (65° - 75°F), it may also be rainy and "chilly". To be safe, we suggest that you bring an umbrella.
