After about 3 kilometres, turn at the TV tower, then turn right in the direction of MediaPark. The highest building is the KölnTurm (Mediapark 8).
Access to the car parks from the north is directly behind the railway bridge. You can either drive into the central underground car park of the MediaPark (keep right) or follow the signs to the parking spaces of the KölnTurm (keep left).
If you come from Hansaring, you can reach the car parks via the access road at the Cinedom cinema. On the left side of the cinema, you can drive into the central underground car park of the MediaPark or you can follow the signs to the parking spaces of the KölnTurm.
A sufficient number of chargeable parking spaces is available in the public underground car park of the MediaPark. IQWiG cannot validate parking tickets.
From here you can get to the KölnTurm (Mediapark 8) by using the next staircase leading to the MediaPark square, where you can see the main entrance of the KölnTurm. Alternatively, you can follow the signs to "Köln-Turm/Mediapark 8" in the underground car park and use the underground entrance (second basement floor [2. UG]) and the elevator to the reception of the KölnTurm on the ground floor. The stairs directly behind the reception of the KölnTurm lead to the reception of IQWiG on the first floor.
The KölnTurm itself has a small number of visitors' parking spaces on the second basement floor (2. UG) of the underground car park of the MediaPark. It cannot be guaranteed that there are free spaces available, however, and the Institute has no influence on availability. You can reach the KölnTurm visitors' parking spaces by following the signs "Köln-Turm/Mediapark8" on the underground circular street.
