Getting here

... by bike

Thanks to the excellent location of the institute in the Bonn Rheinaue, it is quite possible to reach the institute by bicycle via the very popular Rhine cycle path. In front of the building and also in the access road to the underground car park we offer enough possibilities to safely connect the bicycle.

... by public transportation

  • Bus line 610 toward "Mehlem Giselherstr." (every 20 min.): Disembark at "Rheinaue Süd"
  • Bus line 611 toward "Heiderhof" (every 20 min.): Disembark at "Rheinaue Süd"

Both connections have a travel time of about 15min. You can see the building directly from the bus stop, it's a 2min walk.
