How to find us

By car:

Approaching Heidelberg on Autobahn A5 from Frankfurt or Karlsruhe, change to Autobahn A656 from direction Mannheim at the junction "Heidelberger Kreuz". Continue on Autobahn A 656 to Heidelberg, which ends at the Heidelberg City limits.
As you enter the city of Heidelberg, follow the signs „Eberbach/HD-Wieblingen/Chirurgie“: Turn left at first traffic light, then right at second. Follow the curve at the next light. Underpass the Neckar Bridge, then turn right twice heading for "Chirurgie". Having crossed the Neckar River, take the left lane at the first intersection and head for "Chirurgie/DKFZ". Follow this street to the next intersection. Do NOT turn left and drive through the gate, as indicated by DKFZ-signs (it's a checkpoint)! Drive straight ahead instead. To the right there are parking lots where you can park your car. From the car park walk back to the gate and pass it. Follow the street for about 100 meters. The German Cancer Research Center is the tall building on the right (for your orientation, you can find the house numbers on the top of each building; DKFZ has 280). Go straight ahead along the building, until you can see the main entrance on the right and the fountain in front it. (Notice: You cannot enter DKFZ via the communication center, which is the modern white building on the left). In the entrance hall please contact the information desk for further help.

By public transportation (tramway/bus):

Take the north exit (Kurfürstenanlage) of the central station to the tram stop. Take tram number 4 with terminus "Handschuhsheim", or tram number 1 with terminus "Blumenthalstraße West" (Beware that tram number 1 with terminus "Handschuhsheim" is the wrong direction!). 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.

The bus stop is located next to the tram stop. Take Bus number 33 to "Sportzentrum Nord" and get off at stop "Chirurgische Klinik". About 100 meters down the road you will see the DKFZ main entrance on your right.

Walking distance from main station:

Since 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“. About 100 meters down the road you will see the DKFZ main entrance on your right.
