The institute is located at the end of the street.
Information for truck drivers:
If you are coming from the other direction (Magstadter Straße), please do not immediately turn left into Kaindlstraße. Here the street is usually parked with cars on both sides and too narrow for trucks. Please drive to the intersection Büsnauer Straße/Ob dem Steinbach Kaindlstraße before turning left into Kaindlstraße.
At this intersection there is also a sign to ISWA/Lehr- und Forschungsklärwerk.
