The Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development, BBSR, has analysed regional accessibility for Germany since the 1980s. Its multimodal and GIS-based analytical system is applied for monitoring the performance, efficiency and quality of transport infrastructure, the settlement system and access to services of general interest. It also acts as decision support tool for national transport and regional policy. Given new challenges for the accessibility model through the availability of new data, methods and political ob-jectives, the BBSR commissioned a study to develop scientific recommendations for an update and expansion of its analyses. This paper presents selected results focusing on a more realistic representation of car travel times and the way of modelling central places as destinations.
