How to reach via public transport

From the central station in Mainz, the easiest way to get to the apartment building is with the tram. Lines 51 or 53 in direction of Lerchenberg/Hindemithstraße. The closest stop is called „Plaza“ and is right next to the apartment building.

Another option are the bus lines 75 (in direction of Ingelheim) or 650 (in direction of Sprendlingen). Get off at the stop „Hochschule Mainz“, take the stairs and then walk straight ahead until the end of the road. Your building is the last one on the left-hand side (house no. 4, orange-coloured).

The last option is to take bus lines 54, 55, 56, 90 to the stop „Kisselberg/Coface“. You can see the apartment building from the stop. It is only a short walk from there.


Yes, there are several parking spaces at the „Hochschule Mainz“, which is right next to the apartment building. Please note that you cannot enter the university campus by car. Both Max Planck Institutes are in walking distance of the apartment building.
