By Train:


From the front entrance of the Kaiserslautern Train Station, walk down the hill straight ahead on the Richard Wagner Straße. The Café is shortly after the intersection of the Richard Wagner Straße and the Pirmasenser Str. about 550 meters from the Train Station on the left side of the street across the street from a Barbarossa Bakery.




By Car from the Mainz / Wiesbaden direction:


From the Mainzer loop take the A63 in the direction of Kaiserslautern. Take exit 15 from the Kaiserslutern triangle in the direction of Mannheim / Kaiserslautern city center.




By Car from the Rhein-Main area:


From the Frankfurt loop get onto the A5 direction Basel.

At exit 33 by Weinheim merge into the A659 direction Viernheim/Mannheim/Saarbrücken.

At exit 4 by Viernheim get onto the A6 direction Frankfurt / Saarbrücken. From the A6 traveling in the direction of Saarbrücken take the exit for the Kaiserslautern city center



By Car from the South:


Take the A5 direction Karlsruhe. Take exit 48 Karlsruhe South direction Rheinstetten / Landau (Pfalz) / Ettlingen. Take this in the direction of Neustadt on the Weinstraße and from there take the B39 in the direction of Kaiserslautern. At the next large intersection take a left towards Stadium/Bahnhof/B37



In Kaiserslautern:


From the Autobahn exit Kaiserslautern east take a left at the second traffic light onto the Donnersberg Str. direction Stadium/ Bahnhof / B37. At the large intersection by the Shell go straight ahead and remain on that street as it curves to the right.


At the intersection to the Bahnhof / B37 do not take a left, and instead go straight ahead to the next intersection with the Richard Wagner Str. You should see a large post office across the street from you at this intersection. Take a right at this intersection, the Café is about 500 meters away on the left side (the address is 48 Richard Wagner Str.). across the street from a Barbarossa Bakery. The parking situation can be difficult, but if you take a left in the Pirmasenser Str. there should hopefully be a few spaces there.
