Arrival with Public Transportation

With the ICE (high speed train) towards Kassel or Hannover to Göttingen. From the train station, take a taxi to the institute (approx. 10 minutes). Alternatively take express bus 23 from the train station to the last stop (»Faßberg«), which is directly opposite the institute. From the city center you can also take bus 21 or 22 towards Nikolausberg and get off at the »Faßberg« stop.

Arrival by Car

From the autobahn A7 between Kassel and Hannover, take the exit »Göttingen Nord«. Drive straight along the B27 towards Braunlage. After approximately 6 km, turn left towards Nikolausberg (signposted). Take the third left onto the institute's campus.

Arrival by Plane

Frankfurt Airport: There are two separate train stations at Frankfurt airport, one for regional trains and the other for long-distance trains. Direct trains to Göttingen (towards either Hamburg or Berlin) depart from the long-distance station every two to four hours. Trains to Frankfurt's main train station (Hauptbahnhof) depart frequently from the airport's regional station. From here two trains per hour depart for Göttingen. By car, the trip from the airport takes about three hours.

Hannover Airport: From the airport, the S-Bahn (suburban train) departs every 30 minutes for Hannover's main train station. From there, ICEs and regional trains depart several times an hour for Göttingen. Travel time with the ICE is approx. 30 minutes, and the last train departs ca. 9 pm.
