By Car

Munich is situated at the intersection of various motorways (A8 Stuttgart – Salzburg, A9 Nürnberg – Munich, A95 Garmisch – Munich). From any motorway, follow the signs for "Mittlerer Ring" (central ringroad) and continue to the ringroad’s northerly section ("Petuelring"). From here, turn south into the "Leopoldsstraße" (first road west of exit "M. – Schwabing" on the A8 from Nürnberg). Turn right into the "Schellingstraße" approximately 500m west of the "Siegestor" –arch.
Since parking around the university is severely limited, we recommend you make use of the Park and Ride facilities which are signposted on the motorway.
