The public transportation system consists of buses, trains, and metro which can all be used with the same tickets. The metro connects the airport, the city centre, and the colloquium venue, and will usually be the most convenient choice of transportation.
A map of the city's two metro lines can be found here.Tickets
Tickets can be bought at most train stations, in a number of kiosks, and from the metro ticket machines located in all metro stations. Alternatively, you can buy them via the DOT Mobilbilletter app (available in English via Google Play and App Store).
