How to find us
There are many routes into the city of Munich by road, so please contact us for directions if you are planning to drive (and also to reserve a parking space). Your route should bring you to Arnulfstrasse, travelling from Donnersbergerbrücke in the direction of the city centre. From Arnulfstrasse, turn right at the traffic lights into Grete-Mosheim-Strasse and continue until you reach a T-junction. Turn left at the T. You will shortly pass a second T-junction and then the Skygarden garage is immediately on the right. Enter the garage and use the intercom to announce your arrival. Our parking spaces are along the parking garage, at the very end on the right. There are two spaces marked "Forresters". After leaving the car, continue walking along the building to the door marked “11” to reach office level.

Munich is the capital of the German state of Bavaria, and the country’s third largest city.
With a reputation for an exceptional standard of living, and benefitting from a rich cultural, culinary and architectural heritage, Munich has been our European base since 1978.
That year marked the opening of the European Patent Office, and our decades-long, continued (and fully-staffed) presence in Munich has allowed us to become intimately acquainted with both the city, and with the EPO.
The city’s association with science and technology goes back much further than the 1970s, however: The famous ‘Deutsches Museum’, located on an island in the River Isar, is the largest (and one of the oldest) science museums in the world.
Millions of tourists visit Munich every year – some for the stunning old buildings and others for a sense of history…with other (more hardy) types making the journey to experience the world’s biggest beer festival – the world famous ‘Oktoberfest’.
Munich is also an economic powerhouse, being both a financial centre and a global business hub – it is home to a number of world-famous engineering, automotive and technological companies and has a thriving service sector, too.
Our office is conveniently located near Munich’s central train station (Hauptbahnhof) as well as an S-Bahn station with direct connections to the airport. We are within easy (and short) reach of the city centre and just ten minutes’ walk from the EPO. Our colleagues there would be delighted to extend you a traditionally warm Bavarian welcome, and to show you around their beautiful city.
