If you are coming from the south on the A9, leave the A9 at the junction ‘Lenting’ and follow signs to Eichstätt.

To get to the Ingolstadt campus from the north or south on the A9, leave the A9 at the junction ‘Ingolstadt Nord’. Follow signs towards ‘Stadtmitte’ (1.5km along Goethestraße). Follow the sign to ‘P Münster’ (not ‘Universität’). After you have passed under the railway bridge, turn right onto Östliche Ringstraße. Follow the road for 1km. After the Esso gas station (on the right) take the left lane and turn left at the next opportunity onto Friedhofstraße (towards ‘P Münster’). After 200m you will see a brick building on the left (youth hostel). The entrance to the University’s parking lot is directly after this building.
