How to find us


Please use the access map and the site map for orientation.

By public transport / from Frankfurt main station:

Take the U-Bahn (see http://www.traffiq.de) line U4 or U5 in direction Enkheim/Seckbacher Landstrasse or Preungesheim, to go to "Willy-Brandt Platz" (just one stop). From there, take line U8 to go directly to "Uni-Campus Riedberg" (15 stops). From the U-Bahn stop, follow either of the following routes:

Towards the entrance Max-von-Laue-Str. 7 (Chemistry): If you get off at the front of the U-Bahn train, continue straight on and then turn right into Alfred-Wegener-Strasse. Walk down Alfred-Wegener-Strasse, cross Max-von-Laue-Strasse, continue down to the parking lot, and then turn right. You will find the entrance of the Chemistry building (Max-von-Laue-Str. 7). You are entering building N140 and have to go two floors up and turn right to find us in building N120, 2nd floor.

Towards the entrance Max-von-Laue-Str. 9 (Biozentrum): If you get off at the rear of the U-Bahn train, you will see a pedestrian path that goes parallel to the long side of the Otto-Stern Zentrum (or Infrastrukturzentrum, see building 11 on map), a new yellow-colored building. Continue along this path and cross the street that you encounter, i.e., Max-Laue-Strasse. Continue straight on, passing the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysics on your left, to get to the entrance of the "Biozentrum" (Max-von-Laue-Str. 9). In the building (N 100), you first continue straight on, then turn left to take the staircase and go one floor up. We are located in building N120, 2nd floor.

By car / from the North:

Follow the highway A5 to the junction "Bad Homburger Kreuz". Change to the A 661 in direction Frankfurt/Offenbach and leave the highway at the exit "F-Heddernheim, Nordweststadt, Riedberg, Mertonviertel", follow the directions "Riedberg" and then "Universität, Max-Planck-Institut, FIZ" uphill, and then take the left-turn to "Konrad-Zuse-Strasse." Cross "Altenhöfer Allee" to Max-von-Laue-Str. and turn left at "Alfred-Wegener-Str." You will find the Chemistry/Biochemistry department in front of you. We are located in building N120, 2nd floor.

By car / from the South or West:

Follow the highway A5 and change at the junction "Nordwestkreuz Frankfurt" to the A66 in direction Frankfurt "Miquelallee". At the end of the highway, follow the signs to "Nordweststadt" and Bad Homburg (Rosa-Luxemburg-Str.). Do not take the exit "University" (University Campus Down-town), but follow Rosa-Luxemburg-Strasse for approximately 4 km. Take the exit "Mertonviertel", "Universität" (Marie-Curie-Strasse) turn left at the first road to get uphill. You will find the Chemistry/Biochemistry department in front of you. We are located in building N120, 2nd floor.
