Travelling by car

Coming from autobahn A5 from Frankfurt, Heidelberg or autobahn A67 from Mainz, Mannheim you reach the intersection “Darmstädter Kreuz”. Following the signage “Darmstadt Stadtmitte” (city center), via autobahn A672 you will reach the Rheinstraße.

There, you follow the signage “B26, Tunnel City-Ring and TU-Stadtmitte”, respectively. After about 3.5 km, you will come into a tunnel. Here, the Rheinstraße joins the City-Ring. Still following the signage, you turn left at the next traffic light. You continue further on the City-Ring in the direction of the castle. Take the right lane and pass the next traffic light (junction Landgraf-Georg-Straße / Schlossgrabenstraße). After about 100 m, you turn right into Alexanderstraße (sign: “TU-Stadtmitte, Nebenstrecke Dieburg”). Arriving at the next junction (distance approx. 250 m), you turn left into Magdalenenstraße.

Parking at IDD

At the institute you will find some on-site parking facilities. Parking is allowed in the surrounding residential areas as well. However, empty parking spaces are usually hard to find. Therefore, we advise to use public parking garages in the city center. For example, Q-Park (near convention center darmstadtium) or Schlossgarage underneath Karolinenplatz are in walking distance. You can find other locations on the map.
