Frankfurt Rhein-Main International Airport is located about 80 km from Heidelberg. On arrival at Frankfurt Airport, take the train to Heidelberg Central Station (with or without change in Mannheim). You may also take the Lufthansa Bus to Crowne Plaza Hotel. From there, you can take public transport (~15min) or take a taxi.
Frankfurt Hahn Airport is located about 150 km away from Heidelberg. There is a shuttle bus between Hahn Airport and Heidelberg Central Station. For more information: www.hahn-express.de
Heidelberg is connected directly (or via Mannheim, 10 minutes) to the ICE- and IC/EC-Network of German Railways (DB). Arrival is at Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof (Central Station).
Attention: Due to a massive construction side at the main station transport situation is always changing. Please plan extra time when arriving at the main station.
Because of the limited number of parking areas in the Neuenheimer Feld, it is recommended to arrive by public transport.
Attention: If you are using a navigation device, please enter "Kirschnerstraße" as the destination address. When you reach Kirschnerstraße, drive to the blue and white DKFZ flags, which are located directly in front of the main DKFZ building.
Approaching Heidelberg on Autobahn A5 from Frankfurt or Karlsruhe, change to Autobahn A656 from direction Mannheim at the junction "Heidelberger Kreuz". Continue on Autobahn A 656 to Heidelberg, which ends at the Heidelberg City limits.
As you enter the city of Heidelberg, follow the signs „Eberbach/HD-Wieblingen/Chirurgie“: Turn left at first traffic light, then right at second. Follow the curve at the next light. Underpass the Neckar Bridge, then turn right twice heading for "Chirurgie/DKFZ". Having crossed the Neckar River, take the left lane at the first intersection and head for "Chirurgie/DKFZ". Follow this street to the next intersection. Do NOT turn left and drive through the gate, as indicated by DKFZ-signs (it's a checkpoint)! Drive straight ahead instead. To the right there are (charged) parking lots where you can park your car. From the car park walk back to the gate and pass it. Follow the street for about 100 meters. The German Cancer Research Center is the tall building on the right (for your orientation, you can find the house numbers on the top of each building; DKFZ has 280). Go straight ahead along the building, until you can see the main entrance on the right. In the entrance hall please contact the information desk for further help.
