By tram
First you should reach for Bremen Central Railway / Tram / Bus Station.
>From central tram station take tram line 6.
The ride takes approx. 15 Minutes.
Note: Tram 6 goes into two directions. Make sure that you reach for
'Universität' - it starts from railtrack E = Gleis E.
Leave the tram at tram stop 'Universität / Zentralbereich'.
The stops are announced in the trams.
Hint: The stop comes after a 90 degree right turn and is next to a huge
building with glass walls.
When leaving the tram you stand in front of the huge building with glass
Turn left and walk along this building, parallel to the tram tracks
(following the tram you just left).
Walk 50m until you meet a little statue. Turn right and follow the path
between two elongated buildings made from
dark red bricks and which are connected by several glass bridges.
After the second bridge you will reach the main entrance of the IWT -
pass it until you reach the third bridge.
Enter the door on the right handside under the bridge.

By car
