How to reach DFKI?

DFKI is located on the campus of the University of the Saarland outside downtown. The easiest way to reach DFKI from downtown is to take a cab to the main entrance of the University. Alternatively, you can take any bus line to the University (direction/stop “Universität” or “Uni”). If you come by car (with standard navigation system) just get your parking ticket at the campus gate, drive thru and get a free-of-charge guest ticket from us in return for this ticket at the DFKI reception desk (otherwise you would have to pay the parking fee when you are leaving the campus).

[More info on bus lines and schedules from city centre “Johanneskirche” or “Landwehrplatz” will be given soon.]

The gate keeper of the University has been instructed to allow visitors of the DFKI to pass through without any difficulties. After another 50 m you will see a large steel sculptur in the middle of a small round-about. Stay in the right-hand lane passing the bus stops just behind this round-about. After 80 meters you reach a X-crossing where you turn left, and keep going straight on for another 200 meters until you reach a T-crossing where you turn right - you will see already the DFKI building (no D3.2) on your left hand, it is white with blue window frames and a parking lot below the building. You get to the main entrance of DFKI in another 100 meters on your left.
