Both the S1 local S-Bahn train and a number of regional trains regularly stop in Esslingen (from both Stuttgart and Plochingen, and also coming from the direction of Tübingen). From the station, which is around a kilometre away, you can reach the Seminar Centre on foot in around 15 minutes. Or otherwise you can take the 101 bus (going to Obertürkheim station) from the central bus station directly outside the train station, and get out at the 'Esslingen Volkshochschule' (adult education centre) bus stop. The bus leaves approx. every 15 minutes.
