Directions to the Department of Economics

Parking

You can park in the side streets between blocks L7 and L13, or in the parking lot at the main train station or underneath the Mensa (Bismarckstrasse 10). The Department is around a five minute walk away. If you park at the Mensa, you just need to walk down the main street, keeping the palace on your right. Once you pass the east wing of the palace, keep walking in the same direction and cross two streets with pedestrian signals. The Economics building will then be in front of you (L7, 3-5). If you park at the main train station, you can find the directions to the Economics building under the section “Traveling by Train”:

    How to get to us:

  • Traveling by Car

    From the South (from Basel/Freiburg or Munich)

    • Leave the A5 highway at the Walldorf intersection and join the A6, traveling north. After 22 kilometers, leave the A6 and take the A656 towards Mannheim. Then, after 5 kilometers you will reach Mannheim.
    • Keep going until you see the water tower (Wasserturm). Take the first left towards the main train station (Hauptbahnhof), then before you reach the station, turn right into Bismarckstrasse.
    • You will see the glass front of the Economics building on the left after around 300 meters (block L7).

    From the West (from Saarbrücken/Kaiserslautern)

    • Take the A6 highway until you reach the Frankenthal intersection. Join the A61, towards Ludwigshafen.
    • At the Ludwigshafen intersection, take the A650 towards Ludwigshafen/Mannheim. As you drive into Ludwigshafen, stay in one of the two left lanes (take the B37, not the B44 even though there is a sign for Mannheim). The B37 takes you directly to the palace.
    • As you drive over the bridge across the Rhine and enter Mannheim, keep right as you go around the first right-hand corner. You are now driving behind the palace. Move into the left lane and turn left at the traffic signals. The buildings now on your right belong to block L7. You will first drive past the ZEW building (Center for European Economic Research), and the Economics building is on the corner of block L7 and Bismarckstrasse.

    The main train station in Mannheim is an important hub in the German train network. High-speed trains (German ICE and IC/EC trains) arrive and depart every 30 minutes. The Deutsche Bahn provides current timetables on its website.

    When you arrive at the station, leave through the main exit and go left, passing blocks L13, L11, and L9. You should now be standing in front of the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). The neighboring building on the right is the Economics building (take a look at the campus map).
