At the Chair of Urban Structure and Transport Planning at the Technical University for Munich (TUM), we unravel the tapestry of urban dynamics, transportation, and accessibility.


Our mission is to create cities that are not only visually striking and efficient but also accessible to all. With a multidisciplinary approach, we delve into the intricate connections between people, spaces, and mobility, uncovering innovative solutions that enhance inclusivity and improve quality of life.


Through groundbreaking research, transformative design, and collaborative partnerships, we shape urban environments that empower everyone, regardless of their abilities, to fully participate in and enjoy the urban experience. Join us as we redefine urban accessibility and pave the way for more equitable and thriving communities.


What We Do

Our aim is to support integrated land-use and transport planning by means of accessibility - a concept, which has been proven to enhance quality of life and sustainability in our cities.


Accessibility instruments empower interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral discussions among various stakeholders, decision-makers and citizens.

Areas of Research: 

  • Accessibility Instruments for Planning Practice

  • CO2 Accessibility Assessments

  • Monetary Accessibility Assessments

  • Intermodal Accessibility

  • Accessibility and Equity

  • Webbased Open Accessibility Tools

  • Local Accessibility by Proximity with Active Mobility
