Approaching Heidelberg on Autobahn A5 from Frankfurt or Karlsruhe, change to Autobahn A656 towards Mannheim/Heidelberg at the junction “Heidelberger Kreuz”. Continue on Autobahn A 656 to Heidelberg. The A656 ends at the Heidelberg City limits.

As you enter the city of Heidelberg, follow the signs “Neuenheim/Universitätsklinikum“. Turn left at the first traffic light, then right at the second. Follow the curve at the next light. Go under the Neckar Bridge, then turn right twice heading for “Neuenheim / Universitätsklinikum”.

Having crossed the Neckar River, take any of the straight lanes and follow “Berliner Str.” until you reach the tramway stop “Technologiepark”. Then turn left at the stop light and go straight on “Im Neuenheimer Feld” for about 600m until you see building number 672 on your right. Take a right before that and park in any of the (charged) parking spaces there. Go along building 672 until you reach building number 669. In the entrance hall please phone 6869 from the dial pad so we can buzz you in.
