Transport to/from EMBL
A bus has been arranged to/from Heidelberg train station. It will pick up passengers at 9:00 from the bus-bay on Kurfürsten-Anlage, on the far opposite side of the street to the Print Media Academy. To get to this stop, exit the train station by the main exit (you should see the tourist information on the left and taxi-stands to your right) and then cross the street (Lessingstr.) using the pedestrian crossing. The bus bay is on the far side of the smaller street on the right-hand side (you will need to cross this street to get there). The bus will return from the EMBL bus-stop at 16:30.
The number 39 public bus from Bismarckplatz to Rohrbach Süd also stops at EMBL (please note that only the buses with the destination Rohrbach Süd stop at EMBL; those with a final destination of Königstühl take a different route).
