Train

If you travel by train, you'll get off at Kiel Central Station (Kiel Hauptbahnhof or Kiel Hbf) and go to the exit in the direction of travel. Turn left at the end of the tracks (Kiel Central Station is a dead-end station) and leave the station. The bus stops are just in front of you (Click on a link to go to the respective com­pa­ny's website for more information).

Go to bus stop B2 (see the schematic map below) and take bus lines No. 61/62 (Direction "Suchsdorf (üb. Universität)" and "Projensdorf (üb. Universität)", click on the link to see the timetable) to the University. Get off the bus at the university bus stop ("Universität") in the Olshausenstrasse (see the map above). When you get off the bus, you'll see a big brick arch or gateway (on your right, if you follow the direction the bus takes), the main entrance to the campus. Go through the arch into Rudolf-Höber-Strasse. The Otto-Meyerhof-Building is just on your left. In order to get to the Eduard-Buchner-Building, go around the Otto-Meyerhof-Building: follow the Rudolf-Höber-Strasse, then turn left, then left again, and after about 30 m you'll see it on your right.

Another option is to take bus lines No. 91/92 (directions "Holtenau - Friedrichsort" and "Wik, Herthastraße") from Sophienblatt (Kiel Central Station) to the university. The university bus stop ("Universität/Westring"), however, is at the crossing of Westring and Olshausenstrasse (see the map above). From there it is still a 200-meter walk to the Biochemical Institute. When you get off the bus, go back to the crossing, turn right and cross the Westring. Go down Olshausenstrasse until you reach the big brick arch, the main entrance to campus (in front of you on the left you'll see the "Blue Christian", the administration building of the university). Turn right and go through the arch into Rudolf-Höber-Strasse. The Otto-Meyerhof-Building is just on your left. In order to get to the Eduard-Buchner-Building, go around the Otto-Meyerhof-Building: follow the Rudolf-Höber-Strasse, then turn left, then left again, and after about 30 m you'll see it on your right.

Car

If you travel by car, stay on the motorway A215 until you reach Kiel. At the end of the motorway, at the traffic light, turn left into Westring and continue until you reach the crossing of Westring and Olshausenstrasse. Right before this crossing where you need to turn left you see an oddly shaped building (the University Church) with many stained-glass windows (see a picture here External Link, photo by Genet, licence: CC BY-SA 3.0) on the left. At the crossing, turn left into Ols­hau­sen­stras­se. After approx. 100 m you'll see a brick arch (a gateway) on your right, the main entrance to the campus. It might be difficult, but park your car somewhere in that area, since you are not permitted to drive through the arch. Walk then through it into Rudolf-Höber-Strasse. The Otto-Meyerhof-Building is just on your left. In order to get to the Eduard-Buchner-Building, go around the Otto-Meyerhof-Building: follow the Rudolf-Höber-Strasse, then turn left, then left again, and after about 30 m you'll see it on your right.

Plane

If you travel by plane your destination will be Hamburg Airport. In order to get to Kiel, once you are in Hamburg, you should take the "Kielius " bus. The bus leaves in front of the airport building, between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 (see a schematic map (PDF) here ), usually once per hour (see the time table on the Kielius website). A one-way ticket costs about 20 Euros. The terminal stop will be at the Central Bus Station (Kiel ZOB), close to Kiel Central Station. You can ask the bus driver to order you a taxi via radio. Or you walk to Kiel Central Station and take a bus there to get to our institute.
The ZOB is located between two streets, a broad one (Kaistrasse), closer to the Kiel Fjord, and a narrow one (Auguste-Viktoria-Strasse). Go to the narrow street, turn left and walk straight on. You will walk past the Hotel Atlantic, cross the Raiffeisenstrasse and finally reach the station square in front of Kiel Central Station. Turn right there and walk to the bus stops you should be seeing by now. Please refer to section "Train" above where the bus lines are described.
