How to find us
By a short 10 min walk
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry can be reached from the train station (Hauptbahnhof Bern) by a short 10 min walk. After getting off the train, ignore the escalator/stairs on the platform and head down into the main station underpass. Take one of the elevators at the end of the underpass near platform 13 and ride to the 4th floor "Grosse Schanze". Turn round, and pass between the two large historic buildings (the former railroad administration on the left and the main University building on the right).

Approx. 100 metres later, you will see a restaurant named "Beaulieu" on the left; from there follow Erlachstrasse departing slightly to the left from the main street. After approx. 200 m pass the roundabout and walk straight on. You will find the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry on your left, about 50 m after the roundabout.
