Directions from the Central Station
From Berlin Central Station “Hauptbahnhof” take the S-Bahn (westbound to Potsdam, Spandau, Westkreuz) to Savignyplatz station (located by Kantstraße on the map). Walk to ZIF via Bleibtreustraße (10 minutes).

Directions from the Airport
You could either take a faster regional train to Zoologischer Garten that runs every 30 minutes. Then take a S-Bahn (westbound to Potsdam, Spandau, Westkreuz) to Savignyplatz station.
Or you could take an S-Bahn (S9) to Savignyplatz station which takes a bit longer but you avoid changes.
From Savignyplatz, walk to ZIF (10 minutes, see “directions by train”).

Directions by car
From the West or the South, take the Berlin Ring (A 10). Drive toward Berlin-Zentrum via the A 115 until you reach the Funkturm interchange and then take the A 100 toward Dresden/Wilmersdorf. Exit A 100 at the next exit, Kurfürstendamm, and turn left onto Kurfürstendamm. After passing Adenauerplatz, turn right on Konstanzer Straße and follow the map.

From the East, take A 113, B 96a, and B 179 from the Schönefeld interchange toward Neukölln. From there, take A 100 toward Schöneberg/Wilmersdorf and exit the highway to the right at the Wilmersdorf junction. Follow Konstanzer Straße straight to Olivaer Platz and then see the map.
