Navigation by OpenStreetMap

Most of the time, Google Maps proves to be a confident navigator but you might as well try the service of OpenStreetMap. They collect less data from you while using their website.

There are sufficient parking spaces on the property but also in Boltzmannstraße itself.

There are numerous bicycle stands on the property. If you cycle straight past the entrance, you will also find a covered bicycle stand on your right.
