Bus
There is an express bus line L, going from the Airport at quarter past every hour. This line goes directly to the main Railway Station. The journey takes about 20 min. and the ticket costs 5,20 PLN (€1,40). From main Railway Station you can reach the Conference Center within 10 min. on foot. This is the only bus line in Poznań that enables you to buy the ticket at the bus driver.
There is also the bus line No.59 going from the same bus stop in front of the Airport. The bus leaves two times per hour and goes to "Baltyk" stop, which is near the International Fairgrounds where the Conference Center is located. You need to validate 30' minutes ticket (2,60 PLN). It is not possible to buy the ticket on the bus. You can buy bus tickets at the airport: at the news-stands and in the City Information Center (CIM)

Exchange offices at the airport
There are two exchange offices at the airport, one closes at 7 p.m., and the other closes at 9 p.m. If you are planning to arrive late in the evening, we recommend to exchange the currency in advance.

From the airport to the hotels:

The taxi fares to the hotels IKAR, LECH, NOVOTEL CENTRUM, POLONEZ and MERCURE should be of order of 20-30 PLN in daytime Mo.-Sat. and 30-40 PLN on Sunday and after 10PM.

By train

There are some IC/EC trains to/from Warsaw (2h40m journey, every hour) and Berlin (3h journey) and EN (EuroNight) train to Cologne and Brussels. You can check the current timetable of Polish Railways or German Railways. The main Railway Station in Poznań is situated just in front of the entrance to the International Fair Grounds where the Conference Center is located.

By car

You can get to Poznań by motorway A2. It is about 250 km to/from Berlin and 310 km to/from Warsaw. However, the motorway in some part is still under construction, which means that there is a normal road and can be quite busy. Driving from Warsaw is much slower and less comfortable than going by train.

Paid Parking Zone
You have to pay to park a car in the centre of Poznań on Mondays - Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The streets where the Zone is in force are marked with information boards. You have to pay in advance. The fee depends on the sub-zone (red, yellow, green). The red sub-zone is the most expensive, the green one is the cheapest. You should purchase a parking ticket in one of parking automats that you can find in the Paid Parking Zone and leave it in a visible place in the car. The parking machine (pol. automat parkingowy) does not give a change. The explanations are in Polish, English and German.

Entering Poznań International Fairgrounds
The fairgrounds may be entered from Śniadeckich Street. You have to explain the purpose of visit to the fairground guard at the entrance. You can park your car just in front of Conference Center (Building #15) for free.

If you walk or come by tram (see the hotel descriptions):

Please, do not use other entrances.

Fair Ground is a restricted access area (people have to buy a ticket to enter or they need to have some invitation). Eusipco 2007 participants enter the Fair Ground with their conference badges. For the first entry, you need to explain the purpose of your visit and give your name to the guard officer.
