General and Historical Comparative Linguistics

How to find us

Located at the heart of Cologne, the General Linguistics and Historical-Comparative Linguistics offices are easy to reach:

Starting from Central Station, take the Stadtbahn (Route no. 16 or 18) to Neumarkt. From there, take the tram no. 9 (to Sülz) to the station "Universität". Cross Kerpener Straße into Meister-Ekkehart-Straße. Follow the street as it turns left. The entrance to the Institute is the first door on your left. The library is located on the third floor.

Another option is taking the German Railway (DB-Deutsche Bundesbahn) to the Köln-Bahnhof Süd train station. Exit the station towards Zülpicher Straße, go down the steps, cross the street and go left. Walk approximately one block, and directly after passing the green space, take the first right onto Meister-Ekkehart-Straße.
