The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in Cologne offers interested groups the opportunity to learn more about DLR and its research weekly, from Tuesday to Friday, by appointment. The tours are free of charge and last approximately 2.5 hours. Upon request, the tour can also be conducted in English.

The group should have a minimum size of 10 and a maximum size of 28 people. Young people under the age of 16 can unfortunately not be admitted. In this case, we recommend a visit to the DLR_School_Labs.

After a brief general introduction to DLR, our specially trained guides will present the following institutes and facilities:

  • DLR Institute of Aerospace Medicine (DLR-Institut für Luft- und Raumfahrtmedizin)
  • DLR Institute of Solar Research (DLR-Institut für Solarforschung)
  • European Astronaut Centre (Europäisches Astronautenzentrum; EAC)
  • Microgravity User Support Centre for space experiments (Nutzerzentrum für Weltraumexperimente; MUSC)
