Travel from/to Dresden

By airplane to Dresden

Dresden has an international airport (IATA code: DRS). If you plan to come to Dresden via DRS, plan an additional 4 euros for the train from the airport to the city.

By airplane via Berlin

I have found that flights to Dresden often are either seldom or expensive or both. If you plan to fly, you should therefore also try to find a cheaper route to Berlin's airports Tegel (TXL) and Schönefeld (SXF).

Berlin is only 200 kilometres away, and there is an approximately bi-hourly bus service from both TXL and SXF to Dresden for 32 euros (round-trip ticket, can get as cheap as 18 euros with early bird rebate). Of course, this means three to four additional hours of travel.

If you plan to fly to Berlin and take the bus from there, look at the timetable (link above) and enter the times for the bus you want to take into the registration table, too. Count a round-trip ticket (i.e. Berlin->Dresden and Dresden->Berlin) as 32 euros in your travel cost estimation.

By train

German's national railway service is Deutsche Bahn. The target station is "Dresden Hbf", i.e. the main station.


The deadline for early registration is over. You can still add yourself to the list below if you want to come, but shared accommodation has already been booked, and any additional expenses can only be reimbursed after the sprint.
