Getting around in Freiburg.
Littenweiler or Laßbergstrasse. The map shows the walk from Laßbergstrasse to the check-in site. The tram has several stops in the city, runs frequently and takes about 17 minutes.
Another possibility is a train (S-Bahn) from the Hauptbahnhof to the Littenweiler station. You can take either the S10 towards Villingen or the S11 towards Titisee. These trains stop next to the PH but run less frequently than the tram.
