By bus

From the main train station („Hauptbahnhof“) there are several lines going to the Institute of Mathematics (Staudingerweg 9). Here you find the location plan of the bus stops at Mainz Main Station.

We would recommend using the tram lines 51 or 53 (towards “Lerchenberg” ) from Mainz Main Station to “Friedrich-von-Pfeiffer-Weg” on the eastern side of the university campus. From there it is an approx. 10 minute walk to the Institute of Mathematics situated on the western side of the campus.

The Institute is located in the middle of the three cross shaped buildings („Kreuzbauten“) on the fourth and fifth floor.
