And to celebrate its 150th anniversary, TUM will open the doors at all its locations this year!

"150 Years of Culture of Excellence" is the motto of TU Munich’s anniversary year. On Saturday, October 13, 2018, TUM will put meaning of these words on display. From 11 am to 6 pm, visitors can see for themselves how excellent research paves our road to the future.

In addition, the Oskar von Miller Institute in Obernach (right on the B11, overlooking Walchensee), the Limnological Station in Iffeldorf (near Penzberg), the Academy Center in Raitenhaslach (near Burghausen) and the Geodetic Observatory in Wettzell (near Bad Kötzting) will join in and open their doors for interested visitors.

In addition to the many hands-on experiments and exhibits during Open House Day, there will be exciting tours to laboratories in which much of the research is unique worldwide. The multifaceted program for all ages will be supplemented by a series of lectures in which scientists expound on their work.
