How to get there
Travel directions to the Max Planck Institute in Nijmegen
The Max Planck Institute is located approximately 4 km south of the centre of Nijmegen. Although it overlooks one of the city’s main thoroughfares, it is tucked away in the woods, sheltered from the noise and bustle of the city.
Nijmegen itself has the distinction of being the oldest city in the Netherlands, with a history going back to the Roman siege in AD69. It is situated along one of the busiest rivers in Europe, the Waal, and is close to the German border. It is little more than an hour away from some of the larger Dutch and German metropolitan cities such as Amsterdam and Düsseldorf.
