All students will have the opportunity of being hosted in a guest house close to the University of Kiel. The rooms are provided by the Academy of Economic Studies (Wirtschaftsakademie) in Kiel.

The Wirtschaftsakademie features modern single bed rooms, joint kitchen facilities and washing machines, TV rooms, free WiFi access and in-house breakfast (included in the accommodation), as well as a convenient, frequently served bus connection to the summer school venue.

Students and lecturers will both be accommodated at the Wirtschaftsakademie in order to facilitate meetings and discussions.

All required rooms for students and lecturers have been reserved in one of the two guesthouses of the Academy of Economic Studies. The address of the guesthouse is Flintkampsredder 11, 24106 Kiel. Please follow this link to read more (in German) about the guesthouse and its facilities. Moreover, this link provides you with a rough map of the guesthouse location and its nearby bus stops, which are all less than 500 m away from the guesthouse and hence well within walking distance.


We recommend using the bus lines 6 and 11 in order to travel between city centre, guesthouse, and summer school venue. 

Line 6 stops at “Knorrstr.” and goes directly from there to Kiel University every 30 minutes from Monday to Friday. Just get on a bus direction “Hassee”. Please leave the bus at “Leibnizstr.” in order to get to the summer school venue, and take a bus direction “Wik, Herthastr.” to return to the guesthouse.

Line 11 also stops at “Knorrstr.” and is one of the best and most frequently served connections (about every 10-15 minutes, or every 30 minutes on Sunday) to the city centre and the central (train) station (Hauptbahnhof) of Kiel. If you arrive in Kiel by train or bus (airport shuttle) go to the bus stops near the big shopping mall “Sophienhof” and take line 11 direction “Wik, Kanal” to reach the guesthouse. Buses into the opposite direction “Hauptbahnhof” or “Dietrichsdorf” take you back to the central station and the city centre.
