How to get to the WIAS

...from airport:

Get off at Staatsoper (15 stops - this takes about 31 minutes) and turn to the right into Oberwallstrasse, which ends at Hausvogteiplatz. The light yellow building at the corner Mohrenstrasse/Hausvogteiplatz is our institute. It's a five-minute walk to WIAS.
If you want to avoid the walk, take the bus line X9 from the airport (the bus starts there) and get off at Ernst-Reuter-Platz (4 stops). This takes about 15 minutes. Take the underground U2 from there in the direction of Pankow and get off at Hausvogteiplatz (10 stops). This takes another 17 minutes.

Take the suburban train line  S9 (S-Bahn) from the station Berlin-Schönefeld in the direction of Grunewald, or, alternatively, you can take a regional train in the direction of Zoologischer Garten (goes every 30 minutes).
