Anreise

Travel

You find us north of downtown Munich at Ludwigstraße 16 in the historic Maxvorstadt district, close to Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and St. Ludwig church (Coordinates: 48.146503,11.582723). The underground stations Odeonsplatz and Universität are nearby.

If arriving by plane at Munich airport, take the suburban train ("S-Bahn", either S1 or S8) to Marienplatz station, change to the northbound underground lines U3/U6 (towards "Moosach"/"Garching Forschungszentrum") and get off at Universität station. From there it is just a two minutes walk southwards to our place. Renting a taxi from the airport would cost about 65 € (price of 2015), depending on traffic.

If arriving by train at Munich Central ("Hauptbahnhof"), take the underground lines U4/U5 (towards "Arabellapark"/"Neuperlach Süd") and drop out at "Odeonsplatz" station. From there it is just a five minutes walk northwards to the library building. Renting a taxi from Munich Central would cost about 15 € (price of 2015), depending on traffic.

If arriving by car, we strongly recommend to leave your car at the parking lot of your hotel and to make use of the Munich Transport System (Park & Ride facilities available as well), since public parking place nearby is very limited and only available at a fee. Otherwise please take contact with us at an early stage in order to obtain a parking permit for BSB's site.

Please see Google Maps for detailed Information. Check the time tables of the Munich Transport System (MVV) and those of the German Railways (Deutsche Bahn). Please consult our information page for disabled users, if necessary.

neuMartin Luther's Bible

It has been almost 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church. Until 2017, the time of reformation will therefore be brought to life online. For this purpose, a large number of historical documents and eyewitness reports will be made available to public. It starts with Martin Luther's Bible edition (a copy of the State Library Coburg from 1541/1551).

neuBavarian University Newspaper

The Bayerische Hochschulzeitung (Bavarian University Newspaper) was founded in 1919. It reported on major events of Bavarian universities, student life (especially in Munich) and on matters concerning the General Student Committees (AStA) in Bavaria.

neuThe journal Sionsharfe

The journal Sionsharfe ("Sions Harp") by Johann Martin Schleyer was devoted mainly to Catholic poetry and became the voice of the constructed language Volapük in 1879
