The closest airport is Strasbourg-Entzheim, however it is a small airport with few international flights. It is recommended to fly to larger airports and then take a local transport.

If you arrive in Paris-Charles de Gaulle with other airline companies, there are direct trains to Strasbourg leaving from the airport. You have to buy the train ticket separately, please keep in mind that tickets should be booked in advance (usually 1 or 2 months before the trip), for instance here.

If you arrive in Strasbourg-Entzheim, from there you can either:

Another possibility is Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg airport. You may then take a train to Basel central station and from there, another train to Strasbourg. There are also bus shuttles between the airport and Strasbourg.

Driving to Strasbourg is relatively straightforward; the highway (either A4 if you arrive from the north or A35 if you arrive from the south, roughly) will bring you very close to the city center. Please be aware, however, that parking in Strasbourg can be quite difficult. If your hotel does not provide you with a parking spot, you can use one of the Park & Ride parking ran by the local public transport company, see here.


You can easily reach ICMP and YRS places by public transport from the city center, see CTS website (public transport in Strasbourg) for more information about the tickets.
You can also go by bike (Strasbourg is a flat city with plenty of bike lanes), see Velhop for a self-service bike rental company.
