How to Reach Us

In the new Computer Science building at Nöthnitzer Straße, we're on the top floor. When you leave the elevator, go right. Our secretary's room is straight ahead then (room no. 3109). You can reach the building via one of the following ways:

By Car

If you come to Dresden via highway (Autobahn A4), take exit 77b - Dreieck Dresden-West to merge onto A17 toward Freital/Prag/Pirna. After approximately 12 km and two tunnels, take exit 3 toward B170/Winckelmannstraße and at the lights, turn left to follow the signs for B170/Dresden. Follow B170 for approx. 3 km. On top of the hill, there will be an Aral gas station on the right. At the lights after that station (downhill), turn left (toward Plauen) and you'll be on Nöthnitzer Straße. Follow it for about 200 m and you will see the new Computer Science building on the left.
If you are already in Dresden by car, follow the general signs towards "Hauptbahnhof." From there, follow Fritz-Löffler-Straße (B170) towards "Universität," then take Bergstraße (still B170), pass the main campus buildings, and almost at the top of the hill (at the lights), turn right toward Plauen and you'll be on Nöthnitzer Straße. Follow it for about 200 m and you will see the new Computer Science building on the left.

By Plane

From the underground terminal right at the airport, take train S2 to get to the central train station ("Dresden Hauptbahnhof"). There, take the tram (No. 3 / "Linie 3") toward Coschütz. You can either get off at the 3rd stop ("Münchner Platz") and walk towards Nöthnitzer Straße via Georg-Schumann-Straße (the Computer Science building will be right at the end of G.-Schumann-Straße), or you get off at the 4th stop ("Nöthnitzer Straße"), take a left turn and walk towards the Computer Science building. Either way, it will only be a 3-minute walk.
Please, note: If you'd like to take a cab for the whole ride, it will cost approx. 16-20 Euro and take about 30 minutes.

By Train

From both Dresden Central Station ("Hauptbahnhof") and Dresden-Neustadt, you will have to take the tram (No. 3 / "Linie 3") toward Coschütz. You can then get off either at "Münchner Platz" or at "Nöthnitzer Straße" as described above for plane arrivals.
If you take the tram from Hauptbahnhof, this will be the 3rd or 4th stop, respectively, and if you take the tram from Dresden-Neustadt, it will be the 10th or 11th stop, respectively.

Dresden - "Florence on the Elbe"

For more than 200 years, Dresden has been well-known as "Florence on the Elbe." Its famous buildings include the Zwinger Palace and Semper Gallery, the Semper Opera House, the Royal Palace (now being rebuilt), the Green Vault, the Church of Our Lady (now fully restored), the Cathedral, numerous other churches and the castles of Grillenburg, Pillnitz and Moritzburg. Aside from that, young researchers coming to Dresden also enjoy the variety of student clubs, theaters, cinemas and the nightlife of Dresden Neustadt.
The Elbe valley, stretching from the Bohemian border to the region of Meissen – and including the Saxon capital of Dresden – is one of the most impressive landscapes in Germany with its peculiar sandstone formations, its vineyards, its gardens, and its historical buildings that are well-known throughout the world.
