Intercity trains, including the high-speed ICE service, will bring you to Stuttgart’s main train station, from where a local train takes about an hour to reach Tübingen. From there the Max Planck Campus can be reached by taxi (10 minutes) or by bus (20 to 30 minutes including walking and waiting times). The bus station and the taxi service are both located directly opposite to the main exit of Tübingen’s train station.

Arriving by Bus

There are several buses that can take you every 10 minutes from the central station to our institute which takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The buses no. 3, 4, 6 and 17 go there. Our bus stop is called 'Sternwarte'. From there it is only a 2 minutes walk to the institute:

You will find it on your right. When you arrive in front of the institute (Paul-Ehrlich-Strasse 15) you will find a bell system on your right. Press the arrow button down until you find 'AMD Labor' or 'AMD Office' on the display and then ring. In case you arrive late and therefore want to go straight to the Max Planck House, you walk past our building and follow the road (which turns to the right). There you see a blue building on the left side. There is a small road in front of that building that leads down a hill. Simply follow that road and keep walking straight ahead, down the stairs on the right. Cross the street and you will stand right in front of the Max Planck House!
