Get to know complex research facilities or the art collection of the KIT, perhaps even take a look into the past on a historical walk - there are many things to discover on a campus tour. With lectures and guided tours, scientists provide interested visitors with insights into the diverse topics at KIT.

Campus North

If you get to know AIDA, KARA or KATRIN during a campus tour, for example, you will learn interesting facts about climate research, accelerator technologiy or the smallest particles in the universe. For these acronyms refer to complex large-scale experiments and test facilities to be discovered on Campus North. The programme includes an introduction to the main research areas and visits to several scientific and technical facilities in the fields of climate and environment, materials, energy, or elementary particle and astroparticle physics. Moreover, KIT offers a guided tour of the art collection.
