4. How can I come to the area?
„If you arrive by car via motorway A7 ?“ Hildesheim is located directly at the motorway A7 and has two motorway exits: Hildesheim and Drispenstedt. The exit ‘Hildesheim’ leads you directly on the federal highway B1. Drive in western direction: Zentrum/Hameln’ and follow the B1, always straightforward up to the exit ‘Bockfeld’. Leave the B1, drive toward ‘Bockfeld’. After approx. 600 meters follow the white traffic sign at the right site: ‘FSB Hildesheim’ and the sign: ‘Jugendherberge’ (Youth hostel). Turn right and follow the street Triftstrasse uphill. Then follow the fastened road into the forest. The tar road ends after 200 m directly in front of the gate 1 of the ‘Sportpark’. This gate is provided with a closing plant and only to be opened with a key or transmitter. On first arrival continue another 100 m to gate 2. There you find the door bell and an intercom for guests. The exit Drispenstedt leads you on the federal highway B243. Drive toward ‘Hildesheim Zentrum’. On the 3. traffic light, you turn right on the federal highway B1 toward ‘Hameln’ up to the exit Bockfeld. Further see above. Our association area lies in the local town district ‘Bockfeld’, on the Rottsberg hill in the forest beside the youth hostel Hildesheim. You can orient yourself also by use of the illustrated traffic reference.
If you arrive by train? Hildesheim offers an excellent public bus system. You find the public bus station just in front of the main station. Pick Bus No 2, direction ‘Theodor Storm Str.’, leave at bus stop ‘Bohlweg’. Continue with Bus No 4, direction ‘Koken-Hof’ to bus stop “Triftstr.’. You’re now at the foot of the Rottsberg Hill. Walk the ‘Triftstrasse’ uphill until you meet the forest edge, continue another 300 m and you’re in front of gate 1 of our ‘FSB-Sportpark’ where you find doorbell and intercom.
This is the inexpensive but ‘sporty’ way (~ 2€, 45 min). You might prefer to use the Taxi services which are more comfortable and available directly in front of the main station as well.
