How to reach us:

We are located in the main DKFZ Main Building in the Neuenheimer Feld campus of the University of Heidelberg and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Im Neuenheimer Feld 280, on the third floor, rooms H1.03.064 - H1.03.072.

From Heidelberg Main Station, please take the bus #32 (runs every ten minutes), direction "Chirurgische Klinik / Kopfklinik". Get off the bus at the station "Chirurgische Klinik" and continue on the same street and you will see the DKFZ main building on the right hand side.

Alternatively, you can take the street car #21 or #24 (runs every five minutes), direction "Handschuhsheim" (#21: Hans-Thoma-Platz; #24: Handschuhsheim-Nord). With both lines, leave at stop "Jahnstraße/Chirurgie" (right after the Neckar bridge). Cross the street to the left and walk into "Jahnstrasse". Follow that street until you reach the gate on the left. Pass the gate and walk into "Kirschnerstrasse". About 100 meters down the road you will see the DKFZ main entrance on your right.

As the German Cancer Research Center is located only about 1.5 km from the Central Station, one may even walk (15-20 minutes). Upon exiting central station, head north and cross the „Kurfürsten-Anlage“ (large 4-lane-street). Walk north along the "Mittermaierstrasse" crossing the Neckar River. Right after the bridge, make a left into "Jahnstrasse". Follow that street until you reach the gate on the left. Pass the gate and walk into "Kirschnerstrasse".
