Travel for international colleagues:

Colleagues travelling from further afield or not wishing to join the group booking from Munich/Berlin are requested to book their own flights or trains as required, in order to arrive in Magdeburg before 12:00 on Monday. 

I would reccomend getting the train from BER Airport to Ostkreuz. There are direct trains e.g. the FEX, RE7, RB14 taking just 15 minutes from BER airport and leaving roughly every 20 minutes and costing €3.80. I would recommend using your usual public transport app (though if you prefer to buy train tickets online, then the app you want is called "VBB") for the details. 

Should you wish to travel by car, there is a public car park on site (25 spaces) for 13€ per 24H. An additional 1700 spaces are availible in a shopping centre opposite the venue for €5.50 per day.

You are also able to buy a "Veranstaltungsticket" for a maximum of 49,50 throughout Germany. Be sure to have a copy of your invitation or this website to hand when you travel. Booking.
