We have a number of rooms at various hotels in the city center of Munich that can be
reserved at a special rate by participants of the SPAA conference:
The Hotel Königswache is directly next to the TUM and the other hotels next to the Munich Hauptbahnhof (Main Railway Station), which is about a 15 minute walk away from the TUM. There is a train from the Munich International Airport to the Main Railway Station of Munich (~40 minutes, ~10 Euros). The train is recommended since taxis are expensive.
