Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum
N 51° 43' 54", E 8° 44' 09"
You can get to Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum (HNF) directly by public transport with the No. 11 bus, which stops there every thirty minutes. The bus stop is called MuseumsForum. This bus also stops at the main railway station, so there is a direct connection to the railway network.
There is a charging station for electric cars in the HNF car park. An EU standard type 2 plug is required for charging. The car can be charged with an EC card or via the traction current provider. The pillar has two charging points so that two cars can be charged at the same time.
Near the cloakrooms are four charging stations where users of e-bikes can recharge their bicycle batteries while they visit the museum. You must bring a charging device, but the power supply is free.
There are three parking spaces for motorhomes in front of the HNF. It is not possible to reserve them.
