By Taxi Or Shuttle to the center

If you are staying in a Hotel, some offer a complimentary hotel shuttle service. Always check your hotel’s website for information or contact the hotel in advance. The shuttle bus stop is located around the shuttle platform A9 – A13, just outside of the arrivals hall. Other options but more expensive are taking a taxi or an Uber. These options are more comfortable and a faster way to get to the accomodation. Uber is slightly cheaper than taxi.
