St.Gallen can easily be reached by car via autobahn A1 coming from Munich, Innsbruck, as well as Zurich (distances: Zurich 1 hour
, Munich 2.5 hour
, Stuttgart 2.5 hours
, Innsbruck 2.75 hours
However, affordable parking is only scarcely available, recommending a journey by public transportation. Please be aware that for an arrival via the Swiss autobahn, a vignette needs to be bought (CHF 40.00).
If you are coming by car, take the exit St.Gallen/Kreuzbleiche and continue in the direction of “Zentrum”. Exiting the tunnel, change onto the left lane and follow the road signs towards the university. However, only a few long-term parking spots are available there.
Recommendation: Leave the car at the parking garage at the train station (on the way to the university) and from there, get to the university by taking bus route Nr. 9
(ca. 15 min.).
In the center of the city, additional parking garages
are available; private parking spots may possibly be hired for the duration of the conference via service providers such as parku.ch
; further, some hotels include own parking spaces.
