How to get to the Hilbert Lab

The lab is located at KIT Campus North in building 439. It is not trivial to get there – please bring passport/photo ID, and read these instructions before you start your journey! First, you need to get to “KIT Campus Nord Südtor” in Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen (yes, no longer Karlsruhe). By car, please program “KIT Campus Nord Südtor” into google maps, or Hermann-von-Helmholtz-Platz 1 if you use a purely street-address-based navigation system. By public transport, you first want to get to “Blankenloch”, then use the bus 195 (direction “Leopoldshafen”) and get off at the stop “KIT Campus Nord Südtor”. Now you have made it to outside the security gate. Go to the reception (“Anmeldung”) to get your visitor’s pass. Either we pre-arranged this, or have the reception call to IBCSS-BIP for confirmation. Next, you will need to navigate to building 439, indicated in square D8 of this map (please save the map to your phone or print it, you will need it). On the map, building 439 looks like a stair with 4 steps. As you approach, you will notice the neighbouring building, which has a huge white spherical antenna on the roof. We are on the 4th floor of 439, on the left-hand side when you enter the floor. You will see drawings and prints of nuclei everywhere as you go down the hallway, which will indicate you found us and at the same time reward you for this complicated approach. If you get lost, please call the lab at +49 721 608 28584 or as a second alternative +49 721 608 23429.

Once you obtained your visitor pass, you can also use the shuttle service between Campus North and Campus South for free. The schedule is here, the according stops are indicated on this map. It can sometimes be late or cancelled, maybe do not rely on the last one to get home at night!
