Getting to Jena
Nothing could be simpler! After all, Jena is in the centre of Germany, giving it very good infrastructural connections in all directions. Whether you come by air, rail or car, you can conveniently take short trips, for example to Berlin (about 270 km away), Dresden (about 170 km) and Leipzig.
Air transportThe closest airport is near Erfurt, the state capital of Thuringia, just 70 km away from Jena. The connection via the A4 means it takes 45 minutes to get there by car. It is only another 5 km to the Leipzig-Altenburg airport, and the Leipzig-Halle airport can also be reached in just an hour by car via the A9.
