We are located in KG IV, the same building that houses the English Library (across the street from the Mensa). Additional English Department offices can be found at Belfortstr. 16, just down the street.

How to Reach Our Campus

  • With the Straßenbahn (streetcar)
    The closest streetcar stop is Stadttheater, about a 5 minute walk from KG IV. Stadttheater can be reached on almost all VAG streetcar lines: Line 1 – Littenweiler/Landwasser; Line 3 – Vauban/Haid; Line 4 – Zähringen/Technische Fakultät; Line 5 – Rieselfeld/Hornusstraße.

  • By car
    Travelling northbound or southbound on Highway A5, take Exit 62 Freiburg-Mitte toward Freiburg/Titisee-Neustadt. Proceed along the B31a. At the B31/Kronenstr./Werthmannstr. intersection, turn left onto the bridge and continue straight on Werthmannstr. for approx. 0.5 km, until you arrive at the Platz der Universität. For parking, turn right onto Rempartstr. and follow signs to the university parking garage.

  • By plane, train, or bus
    The closest international airports to Freiburg are Basel/Mulhouse/Freiburg (CH/F), Strasbourg (F), Frankfurt (D), Stuttgart (D) and Zurich (CH). They each have train and bus connections to Freiburg, generally taking between 45 minutes and 2.5 hours.
