Travling by Car

It is recommended to use a navigation system or, for example, to use route planner feature of Google Maps.


Parking garages can be found next door at Hotel Maritim (Seidenstr. 34) or at the parking garage "Parkhaus Tivoli" (Seidenstr. 21).

Traveling by Train

After arriving at the main station Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof, pass through the station concourse and exit it opposite to track 2. Once you walked down a flight of stairs, turn left. You will see the bus stop next to the cabstand in front of you.

Board the bus line 42 towards Erwin-Schöttle-Platz and get off at the third stop (Rosenberg-/Seidenstr.). You will need a short haul ticket ("Kurzsrtrecke") or a ticket for one zone ("1-Zonen Ticket"), both of which you can buy at the bus driver or at any of the blue and red ticket vending machines.

When getting of the bus at Rosenberg-/Seidenstr., walk in the opposite direction of travel towards the tram tracks. Cross the tram tracks twofold and then turn right. You will see the ISW in the red-brick building across the street, the entrance to which is on the right side.


Arriving by plane

After arriving at Stuttgart Airport, you have to make you way through the airport concourse towards the subway (S-Bahn), indicated by a white "S" on a green circle. The entrance to the subway is on the arrival floor in either Terminal 1 or Terminal 3.

You will need a ticket for three zones which you can buy at the red and blue ticket vending machines. Once purchased, board the subway lines S2 or S3 towards Schorndorf or Backnang, respectively. Your final stop will be Stadtmitte which takes about 25. min to reach.

Once you get off at Stadtmitte, exit the underground station in the opposite direction of travel (towards "Fritz-Elsaß-Straße") and take the escelator towards the intermediate concourse. From here you can either go by foot (about a 15 min. walk) or go by tram.

Continuing by tram

After arriving at the intermediate concourse, head towards the left to walk in the direction of the tram. The entrance to the underground tram stop is right off a "Subway Sandwiches" store (facing the tracks you will need to take the stairs on the left hand side). Once you are on the tram station level, take the U2 towards "Hölderlinplatz".

Get off the tram at the third stop Rosenberg-/Seidenstr. and turn to your left to continue walking in the opposite direction of travel. You will be facing the intersection at which ISW is located on the far left side (a red-brick building). Using the pedestrian signals on your left hand side you can make your way over to the entrance.

Continuing by foot

Once you got off the escelators at the intermediate level, directly walk to the exit on your right hand side. After passing another flight of stairs, continue walking straight along Fritz-Elsaß-Straße and follow the soon appearing tram tracks. Pass the intersection "Berliner Platz" and continue straight next to the tram tracks. After you passed "Hotel Maritim" on your right side, the ISW is just the next building with the entrance on the same road.
