Travel Information

By train
Heidelberg is connected directly (or via Mannheim, 10 minutes) to the ICE- and IC/EC-Network of German Railways (DB). Arrival is at Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof (Central Station).

Take the north exit (Kurf├╝rsten-anlage) of the central station to the tram stop. Take tram number 24 with terminus "Burgstr.", or tram number 21 with terminus "OEG-Bahnhof". With both lines, leave at stop "Jahnstra├če/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 at the central station. Take Bus number 32 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.

By airplane
Frankfurt Rhein-Main International Airport is located about 80 km from Heidelberg. On arrival at Frankfurt Airport, take the train to Heidelberg Central Station (with or without change in Mannheim). You may also take the Lufthansa Bus to Crowne Plaza Hotel. From there, you can walk (10 minutes) or take a taxi.

Frankfurt Hahn Airport is located about 150 km away from Heidelberg. There is a shuttle bus between Hahn Airport and Heidelberg Central Station. For more information:

By car
Because of the limited number of parking areas in the Neuenheimer Feld, it is recommended to arrive by public transport.

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/DKFZ". 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 (charged) 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. In the entrance hall please contact the information desk for further help.
