With us you work in the green
and this is how you get there...

The Helmholtz Center Hereon has its headquarters in Geesthacht. About 800 of the 1,100 employees work there. The site is located about 20 km from Hamburg, surrounded by greenery and beautifully situated on the slopes of the Elbe River.

How do you get to us?
There are many ways: by bike (well-developed bike paths), by car (finding a parking space is not an issue here) and, of course, by public transport:
Currently, HVV express buses run hourly in just 30 minutes, for example, from Bergedorf's ZOB at the S-Bahn station directly to our campus. No need to change buses, instead you can read, chat or relax in comfort.
Alternatively, from the ZOB Geesthacht, the buses take just under 10 minutes to Hereon. more
