The best way to get
to Heidelberg is by using the trains running from the 'long-distance'
of the airport. During the day, there is a train that departs at 53
minutes after each hour. You need to step off this train in Mannheim
(next station; the trip takes about 35 minutes) and change to the "S-Bahn" system or other
local trains that run between Mannheim and
Heidelberg (a 12-minute ride). However, there are other
connections, too, and few trains even go from Frankfurt Airport to
Heidelberg directly. You
will arrive at the main station ("Hauptbahnhof")
in Heidelberg. For
further details on how to proceed from there, refer to the description
Main Train Station:
walk straight through the main hall to find the tram stop. For
on Heidelberg, leave the
the exits on your right,
where there is an information boot (separate small
building right in front of the station). There, you will also find
taxis. When using the tram, take
the trams no. 21 or 24 towards "Handschuhsheim".
When you look at the tram stop from the train station, the trams
will travel to the left on the far rail. There is a tram every 5 to 10
minutes during the day, and fewer at later hours. Be aware that you have to buy a
ticket prior to boarding the tram; there are ticket dispensing
machines at the stop.
Leave the tram at the fourth stop, called "Technologiepark". The
takes some 7 minutes. From this stop, you will already see our
(see figure). To get there, follow the main road. Once you walked
our building, there is a path to the left leading you around the
to the main entrance. We are located on the 4th floor. Turn left, when
you leave the lift. The secretariat can be found in room 4.103.

Heidelberg follow the signs "DKFZ"
"Neuenheimer Feld" (first
first right, follow the main road, which turns slightly left to pass
the bridge; turn right directly behind the bridge to get onto the
bridge). Once you
will have crossed the river Neckar, do not turn left as
but carry on straight. In the distance, you can already see our
front of you (see figure). At the third traffic light
the bridge, turn left (two lanes for left turning traffic).
at the next crossing (some 80 meters) turn right into a small road. On
your left there will be several grey buildings numbered in big letters
500 to 504. At the next crossing (120 meters) turn right and
