The quickest way to reach us...

Situated directly next to the Griebnitzsee metropolitan train (S-Bahn) station, the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam-Babelsberg is superbly located in terms of accessibility. On S-Bahn line S7, it is just a short ride to both the capital Berlin and Potsdam’s city center. The Griebnitzsee station is also served by local transport bus lines 694 and 696.

The lake-side campus is an impressive oasis of greenery set in beautifully tended grounds. The main buildings and the auditorium building are located at Prof.-Dr.-Helmert-Straße 2-3. Here you will find eight of the ten Research Groups as well as the administration.
