For your convenience, please also consult our map with route planner.
Because of the current parking situation, we recommend public transportation. If you prefer travelling by car, please request a guest parking permit from the corresponding institute.This permit allows you to park your car in the parking lot adjacent to the Physikzentrum (adjacent to Otto-Blumenthal-Straße) or in the parking lot adjacent to Forckenbeckstraße (both RWTH parking zone U). Without a guest parking permit you are only allowed to park your car on Otto-Blumenthal-Straße or on Forckenbeckstraße (but not in the parking lots mentioned before).
Arriving from the autobahn
At Autobahnkreuz Aachen, the intersection of A4 and A44, take A4 heading towards Heerlen (NL). Leave the autobahn at exit Aachen-Laurensberg and take the freeway towards Aachen-Innenstadt (Aachen center). Follow the signs RWTH Melaten, which will guide you into a short tunnel. After you have left this tunnel, take the next exit and go straight across the traffic circle. You are now on Forckenbeckstraße. After approximately 400 meters there is a parking area to the left of Forckenbeckstraße. Please take the stairs opposite the parking area, which lead away from the bus stop towards the street Otto-Blumenthal-Straße. The buidling across this street is the Physikzentrum.
Arriving from Aachen center
As there is no distinguished way to the Physikzentrum from Aachen center, please consult our map with route planner.
