It now shows signs of both cultural influences which gives it its individuality and is now a gateway to Germany through the bridge to Kehl.

Ciarus, our main venue

Ciarus offers accommodation, a buffet restaurant, and a café. Also, this is where the conferences and workshops will be held in their comfortable layout and furnishing. But that’s not all! If you need a place to chat away with your friends, there are places for that. And if you want to relax in a quiet/silent room with a book or simply lose yourself in your thoughts, there are places for that too! 

Since it is ideally located in the city centre, the great majority of other events (the Icebreaker and the Gala, for example) and activities will be accessible on foot.

By tram

Tram D commutes between Kehl Bahnhof stop by the train station and Strasbourg Homme de Fer stop in the city centre.

Once at Homme de Fer, it only takes a 10-minute walk to Ciarus going north-east (general direction).

Walk straight into “rue du Noyer” where the tram drives on. At the river, cross the bridge and go left. You are now walking along Quai Kléber. 

Carry on walking along the river until you arrive at a place with a big fancy building and a church on your left. They respectively are a tribunal and Saint-Pierre le Jeune Church. Take the street in between the two and walk for a few meters. You will find Ciarus on your left. 

By car

Strasbourg can be reached from various directions:

From the west (Paris, Benelux) taking the A4 highway (E25). About 4 hours from Paris;

From the south (Switzerland, Lyon), taking the A35 highway (E25). About 5 hours from Lyon;

From the north and east (Germany), taking the A5 highway (E35).

The Strasbourg-Mulhouse route joins it to the rest of the French motorway network. Strasbourg is fifteen minutes from the Hamburg-Frankfurt-Basel-Genova or Milan motorway, itself linked to the entire European motorway network. Fair warning: motorways are privately owned in France and most of them will charge you a toll fee.

Important information to take into account:

Driving around within Strasbourg requires one to be particularly accustomed with the French traffic regulation which has some unique particularities.

We do not recommend getting parked near the city centre as available parking spaces are scarce and can be very expensive.

An easier and cheaper solution to park in Strasbourg is to do so in an area further away from the city centre accessible by tram.
