How to reach Otto-Wolfskehl-Haus

Site plan Otto-Wolfskehl-Haus (H1|82)

Otto-Wolfskehl-Haus (buidling H1|82) is located right next to the university stadium (Hochschulstadion) on Campus Lichtwiese. You can download a campus map here.

Address:

Nieder-Ramstädter Str. 130
64285 Darmstadt

..by train & public transport

If you arrive at the central railway station, you can reach the city center (Luisenplatz) by tram (e.g. lines 2, 3, 5) or bus (e.g. lines F, H, K). Here you have to take tram line 2 or 9 (direction Böllenfalltor) and get off at Hochschulstadion. The guest house is located just few meters across the street.

Alternatively you can reach the Campus Lichtwiese directly with a train or bus line K from the central railway station. We would like to point out that you will then have a somewhat longer distance to walk (10-15 minutes) to reach the guest house.

…by car

You can reach Darmstadt by motorway A5 (direction Frankfurt/M. or Heidelberg/Basel) or A67 (direction Köln/Wiesbaden or Mannheim). TU Darmstadt campuses “Lichtwiese” and “Innenstadt” (downtown) are well signposted.

Leave the motorway to Darmstadt Stadtmitte and follow Rheinstraße straightforward to the Cityring-tunnel. Leave the tunnel through the left exit. (This will put you on Hügelstrasse.) At the end of Hügelstraße you have to turn right in Nieder-Ramstädter Straße. Follow Nieder-Ramstädter Straße for about 1.5 km and turn left (at the light at the tram stop Hochschulstadion) in Lichtwiesenweg. The guest house is the 5th building on the right.
