You can best reach us on the following ways:

  • By train and bus

    Münster is well connected by train and bus. See the website of  "Deutsche Bahn" for more travel details.

    From the train station to Mathematics Münster

    Several bus lines lead from Münster railway station to the department building. It is best to take the bus lines 5, 11, 12, 22 in the direction of Gievenbeck or Nienberge. Get off at bus stop "Coesfelder Kreuz" after about 15 minutes.

    To get to the department, cross the street with traffic lights. There is a flat building right behind the crossing, connected to a 9-story-building which is part of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. You will find the Cluster in the more modern, aluminium-coloured building attached to the north of the tall building. Right next to the Cluster and the high-rise building the in MM Confernce Centre.

    As an alternative, take a taxi from the main station to the department at "Einsteinstraße 62" or "Coesfelder Kreuz".

    From Münster (Westf.) Central Station to Hotel Am Schlosspark
    From the main station take bus number 5 to Nienberge (platform B2) or bus number 1 to Roxel (platform B1). Get off at the bus stop "Wilhelmstraße". The hotel is within walking distance from the department.

  • By car

    Coming from the south, take the motorway A1 or A43 north. If on A1, change to A43 at the motorway interchange Münster South, direction Münster. When the motorway ends by the traffic lights go ahead for another 500 meters, then turn left following the signs to "Universitätsklinik" (university hospital). Follow this road over a bridge and several traffic lights. At the crossing where the road signs leading to the hospital point left, go straight ahead (there should be a big concrete car park to your left) - the department is now already on your right side, take the entrance to the department's parking after about 20 meters. Attention - this can be easily overlooked! If so just U-turn twice.

    From North: Take A1 direction South. At exit Münster North, leave A1, direction Münster. You are now on B54 heading Münster, follow instructions from West below.

    From West (Netherlands): If you want to avoid taking the northern motorways, take the B54 into Münster (from Enschede). Pass the motorway entrance and drive right into town. At the first major crossing with traffic lights in Münster there is a sign to "Coesfeld", pointing right. Follow it. At the second traffic light, there is a parking block on your right. Take an U-Turn and go right after 20 meters into the entrance of the department.

    The parking space of the department is reserved for members of the WWU. Respect the parking signs and recall that in Münster cars are towed rigorously. If you stay longer we advise you to take the free parking deck over the road.

    If you would like to travel by car into the city you need to have a certified vehicle with a emission sticker. There is a penalty for driving in a low emission zone in Germany without the sticker. Buy stickers only from the official city or TÜV websites. Other websites are often much more expensive, if they provide you with a valid sticker at all.
