Arriving by public transport

From Bern main station, take bus no. 12 towards Holligen and alight at the bus stop "Inselplatz". Due to a construction site directly in front of the entrance of the Inselspital, this year you will have to walk the last 100m to the venue.  For this reason, the bus stop "Inselspital" will not be served during the symposium.

Arriving by car

Chargeable Insel Parking (800 metres from the "Bern-Forsthaus/Inselspital" motorway exit, marked on the site map with a "P"). There are no long-stay parking spaces available on the hospital site. Day passes for public parking spaces (blue zone) are available from machines at bus stations.
