Rheine is located close to the Motorway junction 'Schüttorf', where the A30 and the A31 meet. From the A30 to the Kopernikus-Gymnasium it is a way of approx. 5 km, leading through an industrial area and the suburban area.

From westbound direction stay on the A30 until junction 'Rheine-Nord'. At the traffic light crossing close the junction go straight ahead. After approx. 1 km at the OPEL dealership turn left into the northern industrial area ('Industriegebiet Nord') and go on passing the KARMANN plant. The street forms a long-drawn-out right curve. To your left you see a cart race track and several sport fields. Two other trafficlights will follow and the railway crossing of the 'Tecklenburger Nordbahn'. After another Junction with traffic lights (ARAL fuel station, ALDI store) a roundabout follows. At this roundabout still go straight on and at the next traffic lights turn right into the 'Schützenstraße'. At the end of the 'Schützenstraße' the school is located.

At this roundabout still go straight on and at the next traffic lights turn right into the 'Schützenstraße'. At the end of the 'Schützenstraße' the school is located.

From the eastern Ruhr area ('Ruhrgebiet') or the 'Münsterland' it is recommended to arrive using the A1 up to Motorway junction 'Greven' and then follow the B481 towards Rheine.
