How to reach us

You can reach the ZSM by local train (S-Bahn) No. S2, Obermenzing Station. Walking distance from the train station to the ZSM is 5-10 minutes (Verdistraße > Freseniusstraße > Münchhausenstraße). Please consult the Munich Transport and Tariff Association (MVV) for further information about public transport.

Coming by car from the city centre take the Menzinger Straße and follow the road signs towards the motorway (Autobahn) to Stuttgart (A8). In Obermenzing, shortly after the Menzinger Straße changes into Verdistraße, turn right into Fresenius Straße. At the next T-junction turn right again into the Münchhausenstraße. There is a car-park in front of the Staatssammlung. It takes about half an hour by car to get from the city center to the ZSM.
