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.

About MPI

This is the MPI

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics is an institute of the German Max Planck Society. Our mission is to undertake basic research into the psychological,social and biological foundations of language. The goal is to understand how our minds and brains process language, how language interacts with other aspects of mind, and how we can learn languages of quite different types.

The institute is situated on the campus of the Radboud University. We participate in the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, and have particularly close ties to that institute's Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging. We also participate in the Centre for Language Studies. A joint graduate school, the IMPRS in Language Sciences, links the Donders Institute, the CLS and the MPI.
