Arriving at Bielefeld Hbf (main station), exit the building towards the city center; you should see a white buildung (Hotel “Bielefelder Hof” - not your hotel!) in front of you (if you see a Cinemaxx, you are on the wrong side!). Cross the street to get to the underground tram (Stadtbahn / U-Bahn) station.

  • To go to the University, take tram line 4 towards “Universität / Lohmannshof”. (You need a ticket for Zone 1 for 2.30 Euros)
  • To go to Hotel Arcadia, take any tram line towards “Rathaus”, “Senne”, “Sieker”, “Stieghorst” and get out at “Rathaus”. (Just two stops. A short distance ticket “K” is sufficient, 1.50 Euros.) Instead of the tram, you can also choose a 15 minutes walk trough the city center.

Hotel Arcadia

The hotel is located in the city center next to the old town and close to the tram.

Niederwall 31-35, 33602 Bielefeld
