The WorldDAB General Assembly and WorldDAB Summit 2023 will be held at the Design Offices München Atlas which are situated in the up-and-coming “Werksviertel” district close to the Ostbahnhof station.

The Atlas high-rise marks the emergence of a distinctive, architecturally exciting highlight that is thematically oriented on Greek mythology, symbolised by the sphere on the roof of the office complex, and boasting a prominent location, conference areas with a 360° panorama and excellent transportation access.


Getting to the venue

Train: The train system of Munich is vast and it covers almost every part of the city. Two train lines operate the route from Munich Airport to the city centre up to 6 times per hour: S1 and S8. Both S-Bahn trains stop at the Marienplatz central station. However, the S8 line is considerably faster, taking only 38 minutes to reach the city centre.

One-way standard train ticket to central Munich from the airport costs €13.70, tickets can be purchased from the S-Bahn ticket counters or the automated ticket machines at the airport train station. The train station is located on the basement level of the central area (between Terminals 1 and 2). Just follow the S-green signs once you exit the arrivals hall. 

Top tips:
  • Once you get to Marienplatz station, you will have access to multiple metro lines.
  • Taking the S1 line is better if you are travelling to the west part of the city.
  • Train schedule S1
  • Train schedule S8
  • Please do not forget to buy or validate your train ticket. There are always ticket inspectors operating and the fine is €65.

Bus: The Lufthansa Express Bus runs from Munich Airport to Munich Central Station daily, also stopping at Munich North (Schwabing). The journey takes approximately 45 minutes. A single ticket for the direct route from Munich Airport to the city costs just €11.50 and if you buy it online, you’ll pay just €11. If you’re planning on using the service to return to the airport at the end of your trip, you can save money buy purchasing a round-trip ticket, costing €18.50.

The express buses can be found at various points throughout the airport complex: Terminal 1 Area D, Munich Airport Centre (MAC) and Terminal 2. Schedule and tickets.

Taxi: Delegates should note that metered taxis are currently very expensive from the airport and in and around the city. This is due to the high cost of fuel. The journey time from Munich Airport is approximately 45 minutes and costs approx. €85. However, if you prefer to travel by taxi you may find Uber significantly cheaper.
