Several bus lines lead from Münster railway station to the department building. It is best to take the bus lines 5, 11, 12, 22 in the direction of Gievenbeck or Nienberge. Get off at bus stop "Coesfelder Kreuz" after about 15 minutes.

To get to the Seminarraumzentrum, cross the street with traffic lights. Make a left right after the crossing, walk straight till you turn right onto a parking lot. The entrace is on the far side of the building.

As an alternative, take a taxi from the main station to the Seminarraumzentrum at "Orléans-Ring 12".

By car

Coming from the south, take the motorway A1 or A43 north. If on A1, change to A43 at the motorway interchange Münster South, direction Münster. When the motorway ends by the traffic lights go ahead for another 500 meters, then turn left following the signs to "Universitätsklinik" (university hospital). Follow this road over a bridge and several traffic lights. At the crossing where the road signs leading to the hospital point left, go straight ahead (there should be a big concrete car park to your left) - the Seminarraumzentrum is now already on your right side, take the entrance to the Seminarraumzentrum's parking after about 20 meters. Attention - this can be easily overlooked! If so just U-turn twice.

From North: Take A1 direction South. At exit Münster North, leave A1, direction Münster. You are now on B54 heading Münster, follow instructions from West below.

From West (Netherlands): If you want to avoid taking the northern motorways, take the B54 into Münster (from Enschede). Pass the motorway entrance and drive right into town. At the first major crossing with traffic lights in Münster there is a sign to "Coesfeld", pointing right. Follow it. At the second traffic light, there is a parking block on your right. Take an U-Turn and go right after 20 meters into the entrance of the Seminarraumzentrum.

The parking space of the department is reserved for members of the University of Münster. Respect the parking signs and recall that in Münster cars are towed rigorously. If you stay longer we advise you to take the free parking deck over the road.

If you would like to travel by car into the city you need to have a certified vehicle with a emission sticker. The penalty for driving in a low emission zone in Germany without the sticker required is 80 € plus an administrative fee. Buy stickers only from the official city or TÜV websites. Other websites are often much more expensive, if they provide you with a valid sticker at all.
