  • By car

    Please note: Most of the parking spaces next to the faculty buildings are currently cancelled due to construction work. Please use the free parking deck at theCoesfelder Kreuz on the opposite side (next to Mensa am Ring).

    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. Make a U-turn at the next traffic lights and drive back. Turn right into Domagkstraße, which will lead you to the car park entrance.

    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. Just before the Coesfelder Kreuz junction, turn right into Domagkstraße, which will take you to the entrance to the car park.

    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.
