How to reach the Beutenberg Campus:

  • By public transport: From the city center, choose either of the bus lines 10, 11, 12 to reach the Beutenberg campus.
  • By car: It is not easy to approach the Beutenberg campus by car due to the lack of public parking lots at the campus. However, if you wish to arrive by car, use »Albert-Einstein-Str. 6« as major input for your GPS system.
