The easiest place to reach from the city center is the exit ''Regensburg-Königswiesen'' (no. 42). You can use it for all directions. Coming from the center take the bus #4 (direction ''Lilienthalstraße'' or ''Universität'') or #10 (direction ''Dechbetten''). Don't take the ones going just to ''Königswiesen''. Information on all buses you will find at the web site of [http://www.rvv.de RVV]. You also can take #1 (direction ''Prüfening'') which runs every 10 minutes on working days. Leave the bus at ''Dechbetten'' (#4 and #10) or at ''Lilienthalstraße'' (#1 and #4). From this stop head to the south crossing under the railways, crossing a junction and you will see the ramp ''Königswiesen''. Always take the ramp east of the motorway for direction north {{north}} and from west of the motorway for (direction {{south}} ''(south)'').
