How to travel the institute

Below  your will find a map including the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cologne.

Please note, that currently our building is surrounded by a large construction site (becoming the new home of the Department of Chemistry as of 2025).

We recommend accessing the building via Greinstraße or from the Physics building, both above via the main entrance (large red triangle).

Inside the building, signs will depict the way to the different Institutes of the Department of Chemistry.
