By train

Follow the signs to the U4 or U5 underground heading for Arabellapark/Neuperlach Süd, and get off after 2 stops at ODEONSPLATZ. Walk north along Ludwigstraße and go left into Theresienstraße. At the corner of Theresienstraße and Amalienstraße No. 33 there is the MPI.

By plane
Munich Airport is situated about 40 km north of Munich at Erding. As taking a taxi will be expensive (about 60 Euro) and might take longer, using the Airport city train is recommended. Two local railway (S-Bahn) lines, S1 and S8, leave for Munich every ten minutes, taking you to MARIENPLATZ (the city centre) in about 35 minutes. Change here to U3 or U6 underground heading for Olympiazentrum or Fröttmaning/Garching Hochbrück, and get off after one stop at ODEONSPLATZ. Keep left on Ludwigstraße and walk north towards the Victory Arch (Siegestor) and after about 300 m turn left into Theresienstraße. The institute is at the corner of Theresienstraße/Amalienstraße no. 33 after another 200 m.

By car
When approaching from the Autobahn, take the ring road (Mittlerer Ring) heading north. In north Munich turn into Leopoldstraße (Schwabing). After 3 km you will arrive at the Victory Arch (Siegestor), and at this point Leopoldstraße enters into Ludwigstraße. After going straight on for another 600 m turn right into Theresienstraße. The institute is at the corner of Theresienstraße/Amalienstraße 33. Owing to heavy traffic and parking problems, however, it is advisable to use the Park & Ride system and public transportation (U3/U6 undergorund to ODEONSPLATZ).
