The university campus is a small town within a town which is why it has many stops for buses and trams. A special offer for fresher, but also for all other students, is the undefinedCampus Timetable of the Rheinbahn. We suggest using the undefinedRheinbahn's timetable to find the quickest way to reach your goal!
