The Hauptbahnhof is linked to Rudolphsplatz (where Pilgrimstein meets Universitätsstrasse) by buses 2, 3 and 7. Bus 10 connects the Hauptbahnhof with the Elisabethkirche and Landgrafenschloss.


About 100m north of the tourist office, free public elevators whisk you up to Wettergasse in the Altstadt. A thigh-toughening alternative is nearby Enge Gasse, a monstrously steep stone staircase that was once a sewage sluice.
