Major Tasks of the Central Library:
As the German Cancer Research Center is located only about 1.5 km from the Central Station, one may even walk (15-20 minutes). Upon exiting central station, head north and cross the „Kurfürsten-Anlage“ (large 4-lane-street). Walk north along the „Mittermaierstrasse“ crossing the Neckar River. Right after the bridge, make a left into „Jahnstrasse“. Follow that street until you reach the gate on the left. Pass the gate and walk into „Kirschnerstrasse“. About 100 meters down the road you will see the DKFZ main entrance to your right.
