General advice

Whichever way you're coming here, you should always first note our phone number above so you can call us for advice if lost. Despite our best efforts here, we're not quite easy to find.

Once arrived for the very first time at the RaumZeitLabor, it makes sense to call some attention to yourself (introduce yourself!). It is a known phenomenon that members are occasionally too immersed in their activities to notice a new face. How? - Just look for someone who appears to be doing something interesting, someone who seems sympathetic to you or someone who happens to sit right next to you and talk to him/her.

At http://raumzeitlabor.de/kontakt/anfahrt you will find an interactive map that will show you the way.

Going by car

Aproach from the southeast (Neustädter Straße)

A video description of the route is available on Vimeo

  1. Coming from the "Neustadter Straße", drive into "Boveristrasse" (in other words: go on straight ahead). It begins at the bridge under the "Friedrich-Ebert-Straße" (B38).
    1. point of reference: The ICE tracks (Bullet train) should be located on your left.
    2. point of reference: Located on the right hand side right behind the bridge you should see Gate No 1 ("Tor 1") of Alstom.
    3. point of reference: After about 250 meters (~300 yards) you'll find the main gate of "Spedition Kübler" and "City Box" on the right hand side.
    Shortcut: If the main gate to "Spedition Kübler" (it's on the right hand side next to a pedestrian-gate) is open, you can drive in here and immediately turn left. Then continue at step 7.
  2. 500 meters (.3 miles) after the bridge, drive into the entrance to the "Alstom/ABB"-parking lots (to your right)
    1. point of reference: The entrance has a 2.5 meter tell-tail (it says "ALSTOM" in bright yellow letters)
    2. point of reference: Two big balls of light (street lamps) frame the entrance
    3. point of reference: If you drive below a pedestrian bridge or see an "ALDI"-supermarket to your right, you've missed the right turn
  3. Drive on until the next street crosses yours. Turn right here.
    1. point of reference: After a few meters you see "Frauen-Parkplätze" (dedicated women parking lots) (coloured pink)
  4. Drive on until you're about 10 meters (10 yards) in front of the entrance to the "ALSTOM" facilities.
  5. Turn right and drive through the gate that comes up in 20 meters (20 yards) (if it is closed, call us as seen in the section #Adress and ask for assistance)
  6. Drive on between Office buildings and storagehouses until you are right in front of a brick wall with a gate (it leads to the Boveristrasse). Now turn right

Problems

Gate closed?

  • Hello! What if the gate next to the Alstom gate 8 is closed? I work in the Alstom-Area and i often notice that the gate is shut.
