The Labor has moved, so watch closely.
The new Labor is located near the Bochumer Verein / Jahrhunderthalle Station, west of downtown Bochum.The new adress is Alleestraße 50, you can find the Labor in the yard behind the Sparkasse, which you can enter through the entrance besides the Sparkasse.
Take the entrance to the backyard parking lot and walk another 15 meters. The entrance to the Labor is to your right. (the stairs leading to the Basement)

[Bearbeiten] By Car
The Alleestrasse is the road heading away from downtown Bochum towards Höntrop.
[Bearbeiten] Coming via train from "Bochum Hauptbahnhof"
Leave Bochum Central Station through the front exit and turn left - you are now on the ring road. Follow the ring for about 700 m, then turn left for Alleestrasse. The Labor is located short after the second traffic light, on the right, in the yard right behind the Sparkasse. You can enter the yard through the entrance right beside the Sparkasse. Walking time: aprox. 10 min
- Leave Central Station and turn left. Traverse the next two crossroads. Follow the course of the road ...
- ... until it makes a sharp bend to the right. No matter what the road does: you walk straight ahead (so you leave the ring road and will automaticly turn into Rottstraße) ...
- ...after 800m you reach a traffic circle and follow the road to the right. Cross the road and go to the right until you're in front of the Sparkasse.
- ... turn left and go through the entrance right into the yard behind the Sparkasse. You can find the Labor in the basement on the right.
[Bearbeiten] By train (coming from Gelsenkirchen/Wanne-Eickel)
Coming from Wanne-Eickel via ABELLIO-Rail, exit at station Bochum-West. This is way shorter than walking from Bochum Central Station.
The way is almost identical to the description "via Subway" below. Walk along the street "Alleestraße" (on the right side) until you see a red, brightly illuminated "S" ("Sparkasse" - a local bank). Turn right a couple of meters before you reach the "S".
[Bearbeiten] Via Tram (lines 310 and 302)
Take lines 310 or 302 from Bochum Central Station or the city hall. Exit at 'Bochumer Verein'.
[Bearbeiten] Via Subway (U35)
The station Rathaus is way closer to the Labor than the main station, so if you happen to use the U35 anyway, you may as well leave the Train at that station.
Exit the Station at the exit "Stadtbibliothek" (City library). Walk straight out of the station, leaving the library to your right until you see a church. Take the passage on the left side of the church until you reach the Street. Walk along the sidewalk (to the right) until a rather big crossing (Three 2-laned streets). The street "Alleestraße" is right in front of you. Walk straight over the crossing, stay on the right side of the sidewalk.
