The path to BioInf...

A quick Direction

You can travel to Leipzig by plane, train, or car (please be aware that parking is very limited in our vicinity).

The taxi fare from the airport Leipzig/Halle (LEJ) to Härtelstrasse is about 55-60 Euro.

Forgeneral information on using the train to travel to us, please use the Travel information Site of the "Deutsche Bahn (DB)".

From the airport, an urban railway (S-Bahn No S5/S5X) runs between the airport and Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz (exit there) every 30 minutes (the trip takes about twenty minutes and costs about 5.40 Euro / 3 zones ticket).

From central station, the quickest way to the institute is to use the leipzig city tunnel. Simply enter the city tunnel at the central station (platform no 1 deep, S1-S5, ticket "Kurzstrecke" 2.00 Euro) and exit at Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz (the second stop, after approximately 2 minutes, exit Windmühlenstrasse).

However, you may also use Leipzig's extensive local transport system (by tram) that is run by the Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe.
From the central station (Westseite):

  • Tram No 9 in direction "Markkleeberg-West" up to the stop "Härtelstraße"
  • Tram No 10 in direction "Lößnig" up to the stop "Münzgasse"
  • Tram No 11 in direction "Markkleeberg-Ost" up to the stop "Münzgasse"
  • Tram No 16 in direction "Lößnig" up to the stop "Härtelstraße"

All these options bring you within walking distance of our institute (see city map). You may also walk from the central station to Härtelstraße in about 20 minutes.
