Guest house and International Office

The International Office supports the visiting scientists at the Institute in a variety of ways. We help you to quickly acclimatize to Munich and to feel at home in our city. We can advise you on administrative matters, accompany you on visits to public authorities and help you find somewhere to live. This allows you to concentrate fully on your scientific work.

Some rooms are barrier-free (ground floor). Smoking is forbidden in all rooms.

Guests may also use the following services:
