Medical Center of the University of Munich

The Medical Center of the University of Munich has facilities in two locations: downtown and in Großhadern in the southeast of Munich.

Directions to the Downtown Campus

The Downtown Campus is located in the heart of Munich and occupies an entire district of the city between Sendlinger Tor and Goetheplatz. The individual clinics are spread among ten buildings, some of which date from the 19th century. Since parking facilities are very limited, we recommend that you use public transportation. You can reach us easily by subway (U-Bahn line U3 or U6) and by bus (line 58 to bus stop Goetheplatz). We have provided a detailed map of the Downtown Campus (in German) to help you find your way around, also if you decide to drive after all:

Directions to Großhadern

All of the clinics and institutes of the Großhadern Campus are consolidated in one building. There is ample parking on campus. If you prefer to use public transportation, take the U-Bahn (subway) line U6 to the last stop (Klinikum Großhadern) or one of the following bus lines: 56 (bus stop Klinikum Ost); 266 or 269 (bus stop Klinikum Großhadern). The buses stop directly at the main entrance to the building.

If you are driving, we encourage you to consult the Großhadern Campus map (in German):
