The nearest airport to Osnabrück is the regional Airport Münster/Osnabrück (FMO). Lufthansa connects FMO to Frankfurt (FRA) and Munich (MUC) frequently each day.

The journey by taxi between FMO and the conference venue is about 30 minutes. We recommend to (pre-)book a taxi, e.g. via Minicar Osnabrück. It costs 45 Euros per taxi for up to 4 persons. If you do not pre-book a taxi, the metered taxi fare might be significantly higher (~85 Euros).

There is also an express bus operating (X15) once per hour connecting FMO to the city centre of Osnabrück. For further details, please see FMO's Arrival & Departure Web page.
