How to arrive?
Dortmund offers good train connections to major German cities. If you travel by plane, you might directly fly to Dortmund from some European cities. Often flying to Düsseldorf Airport will be the most convenient choice. Düsseldorf International Airport is only 0.45 hours from Dortmund Main Station. Finally, Frankfurt Airport could be reached by train within 2.12 hours.
To get from Dortmund Airport to campus, you may take the “AirportExpress” bus which takes you directly to Dortmund Central Station within 20 minutes of time. At Central Station go to platform 7 and take the S1 (in direction Solingen Hbf). Get off at “Dortmund Universität” station. For more information press here.
If you plan to get to campus from Düsseldorf Airport, you may take the S-Bahn (S1, direction: “Dortmund Hauptbahnhof”) which takes you to “Dortmund Universität” station directly within 1.10 hours of time. It usually departs from platform 5.
To get to Fraunhofer IML by car on the A45, take the exit ‚Eichlinghofen/Universiät‘. Stay on the road Universitätsstrasse, drive eastward and follow the direction sign to ‚Technologiepark/Universität‘. After passing an intersection with traffic lights take the first turn left. The street that you are on now is called Hauert. Follow the street until you come to the second road intersection with traffic lights – turn right. Now you are on Emil-Figge-Strasse. The institute is on the left side of the road.
You will find parking lots behind the institute. Please follow the sign “Einfahrt 2” in Joseph-von-Fraunhofer-Straße. The main entrance of the institute is signposted.
