Arrival by car

Parking in the institute building

There is a public underground parking garage ("Parkgarage Kaiserstraße") directly in the building of the institute. Access is via Fritz-Erler-Straße. More detailed information can be found on the operator's website.
Unfortunately, direct access from the underground parking garage to the upper floors is not possible. Please leave the underground parking garage via one of the exits and go outside the building to the main entrance (Kaiserstraße 89, building 05.20, see campus map below).

Parking on the KIT campus

If you would like to park on the KIT campus, please let us know before your visit so that we can inform the visitor registration desk in good time. The central entrance is located at the KIT library. Please use "Adenauerring 7" as the destination for navigation devices or route planners.
After the entrance, park as far southwest as possible on the KIT campus, e.g. between buildings 11.20 and 11.40 (see campus map below). From there, walk towards the intersection Kaiserstraße/Fritz-Erler-Straße and cross it. Our building (Kaiserstraße 89, Building 05.20) is located directly at the intersection.
