How to get to the LRZ
der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften
Using Public Transport
Please note: Due to heavy construction work from Tuesday, May 21 till Sunday, August 25, 2013 it is not possible to get directly to Garching-Forschungszentrum by public transport (U6). Please check the relevant information at the website of the Munich Public Transport System.
Arrival by train: From the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) take the underground line U4/U5 to Odeonsplatz. Change there to U6 direction Garching-Forschungszentrum.
From Munich Airport: Three stops with commuter line S8 (direction central station) to Ismaning (takes about 13 minutes). From there change to the regional bus number 230 direction Garching-Forschungszentrum, stop at Boltzmannstraße.
Coming from suburban regions around Munich: With any commuter line (S-Bahn) you first have to go to Marienplatz. Change there to the U6 (Garching-Forschungszentrum).
Other regional bus lines: Bus 690 (Eching-Neufahrn) last station to go. Bus 695 (Kirchdorf-Allershausen-Eching) as well as bus line 219 (Unterschleißheim) go to the bus stop Garching-Hochbrück. From there you can take the underground to Garching-Forschungszentrum (two stops only).

Follow the signs to "Forschungsinstitute" through the B11 intersect straight ahead to the parking area to the left on the Ludwig-Prandtl-Straße. The LRZ computer building, a large cube, is observable from the parking area (see graphic). From there follow the paths to the LRZ computer center.
