We are located in Erlangen, Germany, near Nuremberg in Bavaria. The university of Erlangen-Nuremberg is the second largest university in Bavaria.

Click on the map to the left to open GoogleMaps, centered at our institute. Zoom out to get the larger context.

Our address is Staudtstrasse 7, 91058 Erlangen, at the university's south campus, bus stop "Sebaldussiedlung" (see below for instructions). We are in the physics building B3, on the first and second floors (01 and 02). Look for the signs that say "Theorie II" or "Theoretische Physik II".

Please have a look at the Links page for links to the cities of Erlangen and Nuremberg websites.

How to reach us

By train

Nuremberg is very well connected by high-speed trains (ICE), e.g. it takes just one hour from Munich. From Nuremberg, one usually takes half an hour ride on a slower regional train to Erlangen, although some high-speed connections also stop at Erlangen. See www.bahn.de.

Exit at railway station "Erlangen". Go out of the main railway station and take the bus, either line 287 or 293, direction "Sebaldussiedlung". They run every 10 minutes or so, and you can pay directly in cash to the driver (currently EUR 1.60 one-way). After about 20 minutes, exit at the last stop, "Sebaldussiedlung". Walk along the small pathway, past the genetics building with its fancy orange LED artwork. After that, you reach the green physics/biology building. Go to building section B3 (in the second block, to the left from where you come). We are on the highest floor, where it says "Institut für Theoretische Physik II".

By plane

The closest airport is the airport of Nürnberg. From here you can

  • take a taxi. It takes about 30 minutes to get here (charges of about 30 €).
  • go by bus. Take the bus to "Thon" (bus line 32). Change in "Thon" to the bus to "Erlangen Hugenottenplatz" (line 30 or 30 E). Exit at "Erlangen Süd" (H2). You will have to walk up the Egerlandstraße and then up the Erwin-Rommel-Straße. On the right side of the Erwin- Rommel-Straße near the bus station "Sebaldussiedlung" (H1), sorrounded by trees, you will find the biology and physics institutes. To go by bus takes up to 60 minutes. You will have to buy a ticket for 4 zones (charge of about 3,70 Euro).

By car

There are two highways around Erlangen - A3 (Würzburg-München), A73 (Nürnberg – Bamberg).

  • Highway A3: Leave the highway at "Erlangen-Tennenlohe" in direction Erlangen (Bundesstraße B4). Exit B4 at "Gräfenberg / Universität-Südgelände"
  • Highway A73: Leave the highway at "Erlangen-Bruck". Turn right in direction Gräfenberg (Bundesstraße B4). Exit B4 at "Gräfenberg/ Universität- Südgelände"

Now: Follow the signs to "Universität Südgelände". Keep straight on, pass Cauer-Str. and Erwin-Rommel-Straße. Turn left into the Staudtstraße at the traffic light (sign: "Universität Physik / Biologie"). Turn off at the next intersection. Now the parking garage is in front of you and our institute is on your right side.
