Open House Day 2018
This is your chance to experience science and research up close and personal – in the anniversary year 2018 at all TUM locations. At our open house day, from 11 am to 6 pm, we invite you to join us for a comprehensive program of experiments, tours, presentations and lectures, providing fascinating insights into the world of science. Join us!
When and where?
October 13, 2018, from 11 am to 6 pm at all TUM sites
Information about the program will be available soon on this page!
Come and visit:
The "Main Campus" on Arcisstraße is the historical heart and center of TUM. On Open House Day the participating faculties of the Main Campus will be joined by the Department of Sport and Health Sciences (TUM campus at the Olympic Park, Connollystr.) and the university hospital TUM Klinikum rechts der Isar (Ismaninger Str.). The TUM Campus Singapore will also present itself here during Open House Day.

The Garching campus is one of the largest centers for research and teaching in Germany and the largest TUM campus. This year more than 35 institutes, facilities and science-oriented companies will take part in Open House Day.
In the 21st century we face major challenges: Food for the world's population, dwindling supplies of fossil fuels and climate change are all topics of our times. Mastering these challenges calls for cutting-edge research – in terms of both in fundamental knowledge and applications. Here life sciences take on an important role, since they cover the entire range of subjects from producing foodstuffs to provision of biogenic raw materials and all the way to conserving a livable environment. The TUM School of Life Sciences Weihenstephan pursues these topics intensively.
We'll provide you with insights into the various aspects of research and teaching at the Weihenstephan campus with approximately 90 different possibilities. Here you and the entire family can have a closer look at the following areas:
- Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences
- Brewing and Food Technology
- Nutrition Science
- Food Chemistry
- Forest Science
- Landscape Architecture & Landscape Planning
In addition, you'll find a diverse range of food and beverages accompanied by a fascinating cultural program. Further information about the program at our Freising campus.
Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability
At the TUM Campus Straubing research and teaching focus on renewable resources, biotechnology and bioeconomy. Learn about the Campus and its ambitious goal of creating a more sustainable future in tours, presentations and show lectures.
Geodetic Observatory Wettzell
Wettzell's highly sensitive measuring devices make it not only an exciting research station, but also an important point of reference for measuring the position of the earth in space, a decisive factor among other things in the precision of GPS navigation systems.
The Observatory is operated by the TUM Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering together with the German Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG).
TUM Science and Study Center Raitenhaslach
Take advantage of Open House Day to have a look inside the TUM conference center in the former Cistercian monastery Raitenhaslach. The conference center was established in order to promote intellectual recreation and creative, scientific interaction in an idyllic natural landscape far from the everyday activities of the university.
Limnological Research Station Iffeldorf
Inland waters and their immediate surroundings represent a highly diverse habitat for many species of plants and animals. Located close to the Osterseen lakes near Penzberg, the Limnological Research Station Iffeldorf centers its research on the ecology of lakes and all related issues.
Obernach Research Institute
The research institute for Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering in Obernach near Walchensee lake offers unique opportunities for hydraulic engineering and river morphology investigations in its large research halls and on its substantial outdoor premises.
The Open House Day tour will show visitors the facilities and current projects, including the prototype of the shaft power plant, a 1:1 testing station for erodible levee spillway segments, a large-scale model simulating sediment transport in the River Inn retention areas and a test station measuring the transport of glacial sediment using acoustic sensors.
