Here is how to get there.
With Public Transportation
With the ICE (high speed train) via Kassel or Hannover to Göttingen. From the Göttingen station you can take a Taxi (5 minutes) or walk (20 minutes).
If you walk, you need to leave the main exit of the station and walk to the right. Follow the main street, which after the traffic lights turns into Bürgerstraße. Keep walking about 600m until you come to the Bunsenstraße. Turn right - you will reach the entrance gate of the MPIDS after about 300m.
Leave the freeway A7 (Hanover-Kassel) at the exit "Göttingen", which is the southern exit. Follow the direction "Göttingen Zentrum" (B3). After about 4 km you will pass through a tunnel. At the next traffic light, turn right (direction "Eschwege" B27) and follow the "Bürgerstraße" for about 600m. The fourth junction to the right is the "Bunsenstraße". You will reach the institute's gate after about 300m.
With the ICE (high speed train) from Frankfurt (FRA, approx. 2 hours) or Hanover (HAJ, approx. 1 hour) airports to Göttingen.
Frankfurt Airport (FRA):

Trains to Frankfurt's main train station (Hauptbahnhof) depart frequently from the airport's regional station. From here two trains per hour depart for Göttingen. With the ICE (high speed train) the trip from Frankfurt to Göttingen takes about 2 hours.

Hanover Airport (HAJ):
From the airport, the S-Bahn (suburban train) departs every 30 minutes for Hanover's main train station. From there, ICEs and regional trains depart several times an hour for Göttingen. Travel time with the ICE is approx. 30 minutes, and the last train departs at 9 pm.
