The MPI of Biochemistry is located at Martinsried, just outside the city limits in the South-West of Munich. It is situated on the same campus as the MPI of Neurobiology. 

By plane

Getting to the 'S-Bahn' railway station on Munich airport:
Upon arrival, proceed through passport and customs and follow the signs to the 'S-Bahn' (railway). The 'S-Bahn' station is located directly underneath the airport terminal. The logo of the 'S-Bahn' is a white letter S on a green circle. You will be directed to escalators leading down to the 'S-Bahn' platform. Near the escalators are MVV (public transport) ticket machines and some detailed information of the train departure schedule. The trains go into Munich about every 10 minutes.
Purchase a ticket at the ticket machines: a 'Streifenkarte' will cost € 10.50 and contains 10 'Streifen' (strips). There are blue boxes with an 'E' on it for validating your ticket at the top of the escalators. Do not proceed to the platform until you have validated your ticket by inserting it into the blue box. You need to validate it at number 8 (i.e. use 8 strips).
After validating your ticket go down the escalator and get on the next train ( S1 or S8 ) to Munich . You can't go the wrong direction because the airport is the last stop. Stay on the train until MARIENPLATZ (this is the town centre of Munich ).
Change trains from the 'S-Bahn' to the 'U-Bahn' (underground, marked by a large white U on blue background). Take line U6 direction KLINIKUM GROSSHADERN to the stop GROSSHADERN. Change there to bus No. 266 direction PLANEGG and go as far as MAX-PLANCK-INSTITUTE.
There is no need to validate your ticket again when you change from 'S-Bahn' to 'U-Bahn' to bus.

Alternative:
If you are on the S8 you can stay on the 'S-Bahn' and go all the way down to the last station PASING. The journey will take approximately 45 minutes and passes through the centre of Munich . At PASING get off the train. On leaving PASING station take a taxi (there should be some waiting outside the station on your left) and ask to be taken to the Max Planck Institutes in MARTINSRIED. (Note: there are other Max Planck Institutes in other parts of Munich ).
The taxi fare is about € 12.


By Train

In close vicinity: The Bio Center of the Faculty of Biology, Ludwig Maxmilian University Munich

If you arrive by train at Munich HAUPTBAHNHOF (central station) look out for a MVV ticket machine. Choose button "2" and pay the fare which is about € 2.20. Follow the signs to the 'S-Bahn' (White 'S' on green background). Validate your ticket by inserting it into the blue box with an 'E' on it before entering the 'S-Bahn' area. Proceed to the 'S-Bahn' platform in direction OSTBAHNHOF. Take the next train (all trains go the same direction) and go to MARIENPLATZ. Change trains from the 'S-Bahn' to the 'U-Bahn' (underground, marked by a large white 'U' on blue background). Take line U6 direction KLINIKUM GROSSHADERN to the stop GROSSHADERN. Change there to bus No. 266 direction PLANEGG and go as far as MAX-PLANCK-INSTITUTE. There is no need to validate your ticket again when you change from 'S-Bahn' to 'U-Bahn' to bus.

Alternative
At the HAUPTBAHNHOF you can also go to the 'S-Bahn' platform in direction PASING. Take S3,4,5,6 (these trains go to different locations but do stop in Pasing) or S8 to PASING. Take a taxi to the Institutes (see section below).

Alternative
At HAUPTBAHNHOF take underground line U1 or U2 to "SENDLINGER TOR"; take line U6 direction KLINIKUM GROSSHADERN to the stop GROSSHADERN. Change there to bus No. 266 direction PLANEGG and go as far as MAX-PLANCK-INSTITUTE.
