How to find us
From Rostock main train station, you can take either the city train (S-Bahn) or the tram. The city train takes about 3 minutes to reach "Parkstraße". By tram, take line 4 (direction Mecklenburger Allee) and change at the stop "Doberaner Platz" to line 6 (direction: Neuer Friedhof). Get off at the stop "Parkstraße" and follow the small path leading to the red brick buildings which can be spotted from the S-Bahn/tram station. Entering the campus, you will find Haus 3 on the left-hand side. Another option is to take tram line 6 (direction Neuer Friedhof) directly at the main train station to "Parkstraße". Although this route is more time consuming, it allows some nice sightseeing around the city centre.
You can reach Rostock from all over Germany or neighboring countries by train.
We recommend coming via Hamburg: From Hamburg Airport, the city train S-Bahn takes you to the central train station in about 25 minutes. Upon leaving the baggage reclaim area, follow the city train sign (a green round logo with a "S").
