Walking directions to Maternushaus from the main station

The conference venue is about a 10 minute walk from the main station. If you're arriving by train to Köln Hauptbanhof, exit on the side with the cathedral - don't worry, you can't miss it. Walk across the square outside the station to the side opposite the cathedral. There is a small road (Dompropst-Ketzer-Straße) where all the Taxis gather. Walk down this street, the Thalays office is to your left as you enter the street. Cross over the small roundabout. Keep walking straight ahead down An dem Dominikanern, look for Deutche Bank and Commerzbank buildings on your left and Residenz am Dom and Sal Oppenheimer on your right. Eventually you will come to a main road crossing (Unter Sachsenhausen and Tunisstraße). The GESIS building is right in front of you, look for the sign above the door. Keep walking forward past this building for 75m/250 ft until you reach Börsenplatz. Go right where you see the bronze sculpture and fountain. Walk across the cobbled area until you reach the road (Kardinal-Frings-Straße). Walk to the end of this road and Maternushaus should be on your left.
