Take the exit after the third bridge and follow the sign “Universität Südgelände” on the Kurt-Schuhmacher-Straße. After turning left at the first traffic light, follow the signs directing you to the “Biologikum”.

Coming by train

Erlangen can easily be reached by train. A train schedule is available on the website of the Deutsche Bahn AG. Most visitors arrive in Erlangen via Nuremberg. From Nuremberg Central Station (Nürnberg Hauptbahnhof) trains with destination Erlangen depart at least once an hour. The train ride from Nuremberg to Erlangen takes 15 to 20 minutes.
