Travel & Accomodation


The Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics (MPIK) is located on a hill outside of Heidelberg, Germany. Bus number 39 takes 15 minutes from downtown Heidelberg (Bismarckplatz) to MPIK (bus stop "Kernphysik", see here). There's a ticket machine at most tram/bus stops where you can get a single, one-day or three-day ticket (see for detailed infos).

The closest international airport (80 km) is Frankfurt International Airport (FRA). You can take a train to Heidelberg (book at, or alternatively take a shuttle (book here or here).


You are responsible to find and book an accommodation, there is no standard or recommended hotel.

However, we list a few options  with a good location that you could consider (at cost 80 Euro / night and more - it's hard to find something cheaper in Heidelberg):
