Navigation in Darmstadt isn't challenging. The Main Station is not in the city center but in the West of the city (15 min walk to the center, 3 – 4 tram stations)

The best point for orientation is called „Luisenplatz“ in the center where basically all busses and trams pass by. From there Hotels and the conference center „Darmstadtium“ are in walking distance (except the Maritim Hotel)
