Directions to the MBI

The Max Born Institute at Max-Born Straße 2A is located on the grounds of the Technology Park in Berlin-Adlershof. This district is located in the southeast of Berlin, only a few kilometers from Berlin-Schönefeld Airport.  To reach the institute there are several possibilities. You can orient yourself in the given direction and in the linked map. Look for a complex of several buildings whose facade is covered with metal.


1. If you arrive by train, get off at the station Schönefeld or Ostbahnhof (if possible) and use the S-Bahn as explained below. But also every other larger station (like Hauptbahnhof or Südkreuz) has direct S-Bahn connections to Adlershof.

2. The Adlershof S-Bahn station can be reached from the city center by the S-Bahn S9 (direction airport BER), from the airport Berlin (BER) by the S9 (direction Spandau); if you arrive at Hauptbahnhof you can use any S-Bahn to get to the Ostkreuz, where you can switch to S8 (direction Zeuthen) or S85 (direction Grünau). From the southern S-Bahn ring you can take (e.g. from Südkreuz or Herrmannstr.) S 45 (Schönefeld) or S46 (Königs Wusterhausen) to get to Adlershof.

  • Leave the station at the northern exit and walk under the S-Bahn bridge where you can take bus 162, 164 (direction U Rudow or Schönefeld) or tram 61, 63 (to Karl-Ziegler-Str.).
  • drive by bus to Magnusstraße (2nd stop) or by tram to the stop Karl-Ziegler-Str. (3rd stop).
  • from Magnusstr. follow the direction Rudower Chaussee in the direction of travel and turn right into the Max-Born street; after a short distance you can see on the left the complex of metal-clad buildings of the MBI and the IKZ
  • from Karl-Ziegler-Str. go back for a few meters and turn right into Johann-Hittorf-Str.; after 100 m you will see MBI on the left side.
  • Alternatively, you can also walk instead of taking bus or tram (about 10-15 min).

3. The underground station Rudow can be reached by the U7 (terminus)

  • There take bus 164 in the direction of S-Bahn station Adlershof or Köpenick (about every 20 minutes).
  • turn off at Magnusstraße
  • crossing the Rudower Chaussee, go along the Max-Born-Straße
  • the rest of the way as above
