You can by single ride tickets or four-way tickets (‘4er Karte’). The single ride tickets are already stamped and valid for the current ride. The four-way tickets have to be stamped by you when board the bus using the bright orange stamp boxes inside the bus.

When you ride the train, you must have a valid ticket before you board the train.

RWTH Aachen University guests receive a discount on bookings through the HRS portal in some of Aachen’s hotels. Search for hotels using this link to the HRS website (an RWTH Aachen University Logo should appear at the top of the HRS page).

Recommendation: The guest house of RWTH Aachen University also rents out rooms, but you have to book them directly (not through HRS). It is in close vicinity to the IT Center only minutes away on foot. We have 10 rooms blocked for participants of the MPI Forum. The contact information can be found here.
