From Göttingen train station to the Ernst-Caspari-Haus / GZMB building:
To get from the main station (Hauptbahnhof) to our Molecular Biology Office / GZMB (Justus-v.-Liebig-Weg 11) by public transportation (bus; approx. 2 Euros for single ticket), there are two options:

  • Take bus number 21 or 23 which is departing at the bus terminal, platform D in front of the train station (direction “Faßberg”). This bus takes only 14 minutes to our office. Please note that this bus is operated only from Monday to Friday every 30 minutes.

Whichever bus you take, get off at bus stop “Kellnerweg”. Walk in the same direction the bus takes. Where the street splits up, take the street on the right.
