The second is near the old university main building at the "Inselplatz". To look for the respective parking fees, and to find more parking spots, please go to https://www.parkopedia.de/parken/jena.

By Taxi. There are usually several taxi cars waiting near the stations. To order a taxi, you can call +49 3641 458 888.

By Foot. Jena is a beautiful city where everything is marvellously close by. We strongly recommend to simply take a stroll around the city centre.
