From Institute for Theoretical Physics II / University of Erlangen-Nuremberg
We are located in Erlangen, Germany, near Nuremberg in Bavaria. The university of Erlangen-Nuremberg is the second largest university in Bavaria.
Our address is Staudtstrasse 7, 91058 Erlangen. 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". Don't get lost in the A building or in the biology section...

How to reach us
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).
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.
Exit at railway station "Erlangen". There is a bus connection to the "Südgelände". Go by bus with line 287 or 293. Exit "Sebaldussiedlung" (H1). This station is just in front of the biology and physics institutes in the Erwin-Rommel-Straße. From here you need only 3 minutes to reach our institute at building B3. Of course, you can also take a taxi from the railway station to the Südgelände, which costs about 11 €.
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.
