Stuttgart can be easily reached by plane either through Stuttgart Airport or via an hourly high-speed train connection from Frankfurt Airport to Stuttgart Hbf (Main Station).
Bosch Renningen can be reached by public transportation with the S-Bahn line S6 (30 min from Stuttgart main station). Exit at station Renningen. From there, we will provide a private bus service to bring you directly to the Bosch research campus. Alternatively, you can also take a public bus.
Bosch Feuerbach is located directly opposite of the S-Bahn station Feuerbach and can be conveniently reached by lines S4, S5, S6 (5 minutes from Stuttgart main station, every 5-10 minutes) and U6, U7, U13, U16.
Route planning using Google maps is working well for public transportation. Uber is not offering rides in the Stuttgart area, use the mytaxi app instead for taking a taxi.
You will have a good combination of easy access to the conference venues as well as proximity to restaurants, bars, museums and shopping if you stay in Stuttgart-Mitte (e.g. via booking.com or airbnb).
