Location and directions

The guest house at Forstweg 26 is very peaceful despite being located close to the city centre. The Westbahnhof train station, central post office and Ernst-Abbe-Platz campus at the Friedrich Schiller University are just a few minutes away on foot.

There is also a local forest with signposted hiking trails and the ‘Friedensberg’, where you will find a ball court, table tennis area, playground and field.

In the car: Drive along Tatzendpromenade and turn onto Forstweg towards the city centre; or take the B88 and turn west onto Knebelstraße, then continue along Knebelstraße until it merges into Vor dem Neutor. At the roundabout, take the first exit and continue along Ernst-Haeckel-Straße until you reach the junction. Turn left onto Westbahnhofstraße and then right onto Forstweg. Continue along Forstweg for around 500 m. The guest house is located on the right-hand side.

Via public transport: Take the bus line 10, 11, 12 or 15 to ‘Westbahnhofstraße’ and then continue for 10 minutes on foot.
