Public Transport

Stralsund is a small city with only a loose network of public transport, altogether only seven bus lines.

Line 1 goes directly from the Hochschule Stralsund (next to Building 19) to the city centre.

You will find the bus stop of line 4 in the Lilienthalstraße, which only requires a ten-minute walk through the adjacent Berufsförderungswerk. Line 4, thus, is another connection bringing you into Stralsund’s city centre.

A one-way single ticket costs Euro 1.80. However, you can also buy a ticket for 1 week (Euro 12.00) or a ticket for 1 month (Euro 35.00). The best way (if you do not use the bus on a daily basis) is to buy a discount ticket for Euro 9.00 which you can use for 7 trips. The tickets can be bought at various shops in town or from the bus drivers.

Further detailed information about the schedules of all bus lines and prices you will find on the homepage of the NAHVERKEHR STRALSUND.

The most unfortunate aspect of Stralsund’s public transport is the fact that between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. there are no busses. Considering all facts it may thus be advisable to join Stralsund’s large community of cyclists. Depending on your state of fitness, it will take you between 10 and 20 minutes to get from the city centre to the Fachhochschule.
