Due to construction work on the DESY campus, the traffic situation may change from day to day and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The construction of the new building for the 'Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter' (MPSD), close to the side gate, started in 2017. Moreover there is a construction site for the new 'Center for X-ray and Nano Science (CXNS)' close to building 25f started in 2018. Therefore, the number of parking spaces around these buildings and in particular close to the PETRA III hall (bldg. 47c) and the CFEL building (bldg. 99) are very limited.

The DESY gatekeepers know the latest status and can help you to find your way on the campus. The DESY side gate (Luruper Chausee) is usually open 24 hours a day for pedestrians and cyclists (it is open from Monday to Friday, 6 to 19h for cars), a bus stop is nearby.
