Leave the motorway A5 at exit Karlsruhe-Durlach (no. 44) and continue driving towards “Karlsruhe” (first exit). Follow the “Durlacher-Allee“ until you reach the sign that says “KIT-Campus Süd“ and turn right into “Adenauer-Ring“. The main entrance is reached after a short distance on the left hand. To enter the campus by car you have to ask for a special permission at the main entrance. After the main entrance follow the road for approximately 200m, then turn right into the “Fritz-Haber-Weg“. The ITE is located on the left side.

by train

After arrival at the main station take the main exit. The tram 2 heading „Durlach“, the tram 3 heading „Heide“ and the tram S4 heading „Bretten“ or „Heilbronn“ gets you directly to the KIT Campus South. From the tram stop „Kronenplatz/KIT Campus Süd“ the ITE is a 5-minute walk away. There are maps at the KIT’s entrance.

You can either arrive at Stuttgart Airport or at Frankfurt Airport. From both airports you can reach the ITE in about 1 hour either by train or by car.
