The campus of TH Wildau is conveniently located right next to the Wildau S-Bahn station ( which is on the S46 and S8 S-Bahn lines. So if you decide to find your own accommodations and would like to use the S-Bahn to reach us, we recommend choosing somewhere that is within walking distance of an S46 or S8 S-Bahn station.

*Please note* Construction on the S-Bahn is a somewhat frequent occurrence, especially over the summer, so we cannot predict if some lines will be closed or out of service come September or not. Please be sure to check the S-Bahn schedules closer to your arrival time.

Some S-Bahn stops include (with approximate travel times to Wildau):

S-Königs Wusterhausen: 2 minutes (south of Wildau)
