How to reach the MPQ by car

The MPQ is located within the Garching research park and can be reached by car from the A9/E6 (München-Nürnberg) motorway. Take the Garching-Nord exit and follow the sign to Garching. After approximately 300 metres you will come to a set of traffic lights at the intersection with the B11 road. Go across this intersection and continue on for about 1km until you turn right into Hans-Kopfermann-Straße. From here you will see the MPQ.

How to reach the MPQ by train

After arriving at the main München train station (Hauptbahnhof), proceed to the S-train. The way is clearly marked by a round sign depicting a white S on a green background (see the right side of this page). Take any train departing from platform 1 marked Richtung Ostbahnhof. Disembark the train at Marienplatz, the second stop and take the U6-train direction Garching-Forschungszentrum which leaves from a lower level.

Proceed as directed in How to reach the MPQ by underground.

Take any U6-train marked Garching-Forschungszentrum and disembark at the final stop. Use the stairs or the lift to get to the street level, then walk against the direction of the train for about 500 meters until you see the ESO on your left hand. Go further south-west, and you will find the MPQ behind the bushes. It is the southernmost institute on the research park.

How to reach the MPQ by plane

Taxis from Munich airport are very expensive; a journey from the airport to Garching normally costs around 30 Euro. We recommend you take an S-train which leaves from the lower level of the Munich airport. The S8 line departs every 20 minutes from the airport and travels via Ismaning, Ostbahnhof, and Marienplatz to the Hauptbahnhof. Directions to the S-train are clearly marked with a round sign depicting a white S on a green background (see on the right side of this page).

There are two ways to proceed:

Take the S8 to downtown Munich, disembark the train at Marienplatz and take the U6-train direction Garching-Forschungszentrum which leaves from a lower level.

Follow the directions under How to reach the MPQ by underground.

Travel with the S-train S8 to the station at Ismaning, the third stop, and disembark there. Use the stairs or lift to go to the street level and here you will find both a taxi rank and a bus terminus. If travelling by bus, follow the directions for Bus 230 under How to reach the MPQ by bus.
