The Archives of the Max Planck Society is located on the corner of Gary and Boltzmannstr., directly across from the Free University’s Henry Ford Building. 

Our archive is located in direct proximity to the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, and the Free University of Berlin. Both the Secret State Archives of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation (2.2 kilometers) and the German Federal Archives (2.8 kilometers) are also not far from our facility.
