If you travel by air and/or train, then reaching Będlewo is a two step process. (For the information on traveling by car, go directly to Step Two below.)
First step: You have to arrive at the airport serving Poznań (Poznań Ławica Airport) or at the main railway station in Poznań (Poznań Główny).
Second step: You have to go from the Poznań airport or Poznań main railway station to the conference center by local transportation (see below).
Step One: Traveling to Poznań
By air to Poznań
The airport nearest to Będlewo is Poznań Ławica Airport. It has daily connections from/to Warsaw served by LOT Polish Airlines, from/to Munich and Frankfurt served by Lufthansa and from/to London Stansted served by Ryanair. Some other European destinations are available, but unfortunately not every day. This is the simplest and the best solution if only you can find a suitable connecting flight.
By air to Warsaw and by train to Poznań
Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport has direct connections from/to most European destinations as well as New York City, Chicago and Toronto. You may change planes here and fly to Poznań or you can take a train from Warsaw to Poznań. The travel time by train is about 3 hours. From 6 AM to 7 PM there are trains from Warsaw to Poznań almost every hour. To do so take a taxi from the Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport to the Central Warsaw railway station (Warszawa Centralna). The taxi fare is about 70 PLN (16 EUR) on Sundays and nights and half of that on weekdays. To avoid excessive taxi fares we recommend booking a taxi at the special desks of regular taxi companies that are in the exit hall (they speak English) or calling Radio Taxi 19191 from a payphone instead of taking a cab outside the airport building. There is also a city bus line No 175 to the Central railway station (tickets are available at the newspaper shops and ticket machines).
By air to Berlin and by train to Poznań
A third possibility is to fly to Berlin and take a train from Berlin Hauptbahnhof to Poznań. The travel time is about 3 hours.
By train to Poznań
Step Two: Traveling to Będlewo
By car to Będlewo
If you wish to come to Będlewo by car, you have to enter the national route number 5 (European route number E261) Poznań - Wrocław. When coming from the north (Poznań), 6 km after Stęszew (31 km from Poznań) turn left to route 431 towards Mosina. The Będlewo conference center is about 3 km from the crossing at the end of Będlewo village on your left. When coming from the South (Wrocław), 6 km after Głuchowo (21 km from Kościan, 151 km from Wrocław) turn right to route 431 towards Mosina. Again, the Będlewo conference center is about 3 km from the crossing at the end of Będlewo village on your left.
From the Poznań airport to Będlewo
From the Poznań Ławica Airport take a taxi to the main railway station in Poznań (Poznań Główny). The fare from the airport is about 55 PLN (13 EUR) on Sundays and nights and half of that on weekdays. As in the case of Warsaw airport we recommend calling Radio Taxi 61 19191 from a payphone instead of taking a cab outside the airport building to avoid excessive fares. The best way to call the taxi is to ask for it at the Information Desk of the airport - they will make a call for you. There is also a city bus line No 59 to the centre of Poznań, but its last stop (Rondo Kaponiera) is about 700 m away from the railway Station.
Once you reach Poznań main railway station, follow the directions below.
