Anfahrt Aachen

  • From Düsseldorf (A44), Köln (A4) or Lüttich (A44) via motorway junction Aachen:

    At motorway junction Aachen follow the sign A4 Netherland/Heerlen.

    After you have passed the motorway junction Aachen, please leave the motorway at exit Aachen-Laurensberg and turn right at the next junction.

  • From the Netherlands (A4):

    After you have crossed the border between the Netherlands and Germany, please leave the motorway at exit Aachen-Laurensberg und turn right at the next junction.

Anfahrt Melaten

After exiting the motorway A4 towards Klinikum / TH, leave the speedway leading into Aachen again at the next exit towards Maastricht und RWTH Hörn / RWTH Melaten.

Immediately after the first short tunnel take the exit RWTH Hörn / RWTH Melaten and take the Forckenbeckstraße leading parallel to the speedway. In order not to miss the exit, choose the right lane inside the tunnel.

Take care!
Confusingly the next exit is named RWTH Hörn (without Melaten). If you happen to end up here, exit, turn around, enter the speedway (direction motorway A4) again and leave the speedway at exit RWTH Hörn / RWTH Melaten

After about 500 m in the Forckenbeckstraße turn right into the Otto-Blumenthal-Straße. A big parking lot is at the left hand side, and the Walter Schottky Building is at the right hand side.
