How to find Braunschweig

The headquarters of the Thünen Institute are located on the western outskirts of Braunschweig (Bundesallee 50, 38116 Braunschweig, Tel.: +49 531 596 0).

Braunschweig is accessible from both the German Autobahn A 2 Berlin-Dortmund (East-West) and the A 39 Braunschweig-Salzgitter (North-South).

  • Coming from Dortmund (A 2): Exit the Autobahn at Braunschweig-Watenbüttel heading towards Braunschweig. Continue on the B 214 to Watenbüttel, make a right at the second light, and follow the road for about 2 km, then you will find the entrance gate on the right.
  • Coming from Berlin (A 2): Exit the Autobahn at Braunschweig Nord onto the A 391 heading toward Kassel. Exit the A 391 at Braunschweig-Lehndorf, turn right and follow the street for about 3 km. Then you will see the entrance gate straight ahead.
  • Coming from Kassel (A 7) and Salzgitter (A 39): Exit the Autobahn from Kassel at the Dreieck Salzgitter onto the A 39 towards Berlin/Braunschweig. At the Dreieck Braunschweig-Südwest exit to the A 391 to the Braunschweig-Lehndorf Exit, travel toward Lehndorf. After about 3 km you will see the entrance gate straight ahead.

Destination station is Braunschweig Main Station. Travel Information for the German Railroad (Deutsche Bahn) is available here.

Continue your trip with a taxi or public transportation (public buses require about 30 minutes). Bus stations are located directly in front of the railway station.

Bus line 411 in the direction "Lamme" or 461 in the direction "Lehndorf, PTB". Get off at the "Bundesallee" stop. The bus stop is directly at the entrance of the Thünen campus. Since the campus is very large, either plan for a long walk or have your host pick you up at the main entrance. For example, the walk from the main entrance to the Forum, the central event venue, takes about 15 minutes.
