Guest Apartments

Welcome to the Max Planck Institute’s Guest Apartments!

A total of eight apartments are available to guests of the Institute.

The apartments are located in the administration building’s rear wing in Fürstenbergstraße 19, just a few steps away from the Institute’s main building in Günterstalstraße 73.

Due to size, seven of the eight apartments have been designed primarily for one person.

The eighth apartment has more generous dimensions and is designed to fit the needs of the physically disabled.
It can also be booked for a small group (max. 4 guests).

All apartments are furnished as follows:

  • Pantry kitchen.

Occupancy Policy

The apartments can be rented for 1 night to max. 3 months (180 nights). Unfortunately, a longer rental term is not possible for tax reasons.

Priority is given to Max Planck Society scholarship holders or guest researchers at the Institute, who have been accepted for a research stay in the library.

The apartments can only be rented by employees of our Institute in cases of exception (as a temporary measure).

Employees of other Max Planck Institutes or research groups of the Max Planck Society or other Institutes may rent the apartments for work purposes only.
