Leave at the Kaiserdamm exit, and turn left at the end of the slip road to turn onto the Kaiserdammboulevard (later Bismarckstrasse). Continue over the traffic island into Strasse des 17 Juni, and the Main Building of the TU Berlin is on your right after 100 yards.

Leave the train at ZoologischerGarten. From there you can walk down Hardenbergstrasse (five minutes), take a bus (M45, 245, or X9), or take the U-Bahn (Line 2, destination Ruhleben) one station to Ernst Reuter Platz. (Or you can stop a taxi and take a fixed rate short ride).
    • Take a 171 or X7 bus to the underground station Rudow and from there take the Line 7 (destination Rathaus Spandau) to Bismarckstrasse, then change onto the Line 2 (destination Pankow) and travel two stops to Ernst Reuter Platz.

Both options take about an hour.
