Travel & Accommodation

Travel from Zürich Airport

Public transportation in Switzerland is very easy, good and comfortable. To travel to the venue it is recommended to travel by public transportation.


There is an underground train station at Zurich Airport. Every few minutes a train leaves for Zurich main station.

From there, a train leaves for Chur twice an hour. A train ticket costs around CHF 47 per person, seat reservations are not necessary.

Taxi / Car

It is not recommended to take a cab due to the high prices. Rental cars are available at the airport.

If you would like to travel by rental car, you can drive directly from the airport onto the highway. Take the A51 southbound (Zurich). Change to the A1 westbound (direction Basel/Bern) and drive around Zurich. Then change to the A3 southbound (direction Chur) and stay on the A3 until Chur (will change to A13 in Sargans).

At the venue

The conference will take place at the University of Applied Sciences in Chur. 
For local transportation, it is easiest to take a public bus as there is limited parking available on campus.

Take the B 2 bus in the direction of Obere Au and get off at Grischunaweg FHGR.


Chur Tourism has put together a few hotels for the conference that can be booked at a discounted price. Please follow the link below:
