C.3. By Car:
Either you come from the south (e.g. the city) or from the north (e.g. the airport) you preferably take highway no. 9 (A9 - München-Nürnberg). Leave the highway at the exit Garching Nord (exit 70) and from there (either to the right or left) straight; through the next traffic lights, following the sign to the Forschungsinstitute. There exist parking opportunities at the left-hand side of the Ludwig-Prandtl-Straße.
C.4. By Bicycle:
Coming from the city centre of Munich, you have two options: along the river Isar (quiet, longer distance, gravel path) or along the main roads (noisy, more direct route, bumpy bike lanes).
If you ride along the river Isar, follow the path on the left bank until you reach the bridge between Garching and Ismaning. Ride through the tunnel underneath the road, then follow the yellow signposts to "Forschungszentrum". These will instruct you to turn left some 500 meters after reaching the bridge.
If you choose the direct path, follow Ludwigstraße/Leopoldstraße to the north out of the city centre. At Münchener Freiheit, turn right into Ungererstraße, which will eventually leave town and reach Garching. 500 meters after leaving Garching, turn right to reach the campus.
