Getting to Málaga and around


Travelling to Málaga

The best way to travel to Malaga is by plane. There are direct flights to many cities in Europe. If you fly through Madrid you could want to catch a high speed train that takes 2:30 hours to reach Malaga.

Arrival in Malaga

There are three ways to travel into town from the international airport “Málaga – Costa del Sol”:

  • A taxi from the airport to Malaga centre costs about 25-30€ and takes roughly 15-30 minutes to reach the city. The rank is located directly outside the arrival terminal.
  • Trains leave the station connected by a pedestrian walkway to the departure terminal every 20 minutes (C-1, in blue). The trip is about 12 minutes and a ticket costs 1.80€. Depending on your hotel, you can prefer leaving the train at “Málaga-María Zambrano” (the main railway station) or at “Málaga Centro-Alameda”. You have to walk about 10-15 minutes to reach the hotels at the city center from Centro-Alameda station.
  • Bus Line A (see info) travels into town every 30 minutes aprox., and a ticket costs 3€ (drivers usually do not accept notes over 5€). The stop is located directly outside the arrival terminal. You could leave it at the railway station or at one bus stop in Alameda Principal in the very city center.


There are two different areas from which you can easily reach the conference venue: near the city center and next to the train station. There are plenty of accomodation options in both areas. Learn more about staying in Málaga in the accommodation section

Reaching the conference

The best way to reach ETSI Telecomunicacion is by public transport. You can find detailed information on the official web pages for bus and for underground. You can download the Campus map including bus and underground stop location.

The fastest way to reach the Campus from the railway station and hotels in the surroundings is by the very new underground transport Metro Malaga. From the stop located just at the entrance of the railway station, named El Perchel, you will take L1 Andalucia Tech See underground plan, and get off the train at Clínico station, 20 meters from ETSI Telecomunicación, in about 12 minutes.
