Coming from all directions, take the exit Duisburg-Kaiserberg at the Kaiserberg (A3/A40) motorway junction. Take a left at the traffic lights towards ‘Zoo/Universität’.

In front of the building, the road makes sharp left-hand bend. You will find a large university car park on the left-hand side. Access to the visitor car park is through the first entrance AFTER the left-hand bend. Deliveries please use the entrance ON the left-hand bend (please ring at the gate).

Please be aware: If you are using a navigation system, input the address „Carl-Benz-Str. 201, 47057 Duisburg“, as older systems in particular often direct drivers to the wrong address.

By public transport:

Take the train to Duisburg central station. Follow the signs for „U-Bahn“ on the platform down to the north end, where you will find the exit that leads to the bus station. Take bus number 933 or 926 (both in the direction „Uni-Nord“) and alight after about twelve minutes upon reaching „Uni-Nord“. You will now see the silver/grey striped NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum with its eye-catching NETZ logo.
