How To Get To The AltiumLive 2018

Please plan to fly into Munich International Airport (MUC). Once you have arrived at Munich Airport, you are either in Terminal 1 or Terminal 2. The hotel and venue is conveniently located directly between both terminals. Please follow the signs for Hotel Hilton.

From the autobahn A8/9: Please follow the sign and symbol Flughafen Munchen (Munich Airport) to the autobahn A92. Once you reach the airport area, follow the sign Terminal 2 until the sign Hilton Munich Airport appears. The street passes the MAC (the Munich Airport Center) and Hilton Munich Airport is located behind on your right-hand side. Continue another 100 meters and turn right into the associated public garage P26. The respective parking charge is EUR 32 per day.

Once you reached Munich Hauptbahnhof (Main Station), please follow the green and white sign 'S' to the S-Bahn. Please take the S-Bahn, S1 or S8, direction Munich Airport/Flughafen (Freising/Airport), the final station of both trains (about 40 minutes). If you take the S1, pay attention to board the rear part of the train, since the train will divide in Neufahrn and the front part continues to Freising.

At Munich Airport, exit the underground station and follow the signs for Hotel Hilton. Cross the areaway between both terminals and you will find Hilton Munich Airport on your left-hand side.

Hotel self parking is included in the ticket price Jan. 15-17th.
