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.
The car park at the HNF is home to two charging stations for e-cars. An EU type 2 plug is necessary to use the stations. You can activate the charging station via the “PlugSurfing” app, which also handles billing.
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.
