The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) site in Stuttgart offers groups of interested visitors the chance to find out about DLR and its work as part of scientific information events.
After a brief introduction to DLR and the Stuttgart site, attendees visit two to three selected institutes that are accessible on the requested date.
More information about the Stuttgart site and its institutes can be found here.

When you send your visit request, please include a list of participants with the following information: first name and surname, nationality, date of birth and place of work/university/employer. This information must be provided in full no later than four weeks prior to the date of the visit. Otherwise, the tour cannot be carried out.

Admission onto the DLR site in Stuttgart is not possible without a prior, complete list of participants.
Legal information for groups of visitors
Guided tours of DLR cannot form part of any commercial activities or offers. Due to its internal processes, DLR may reschedule or postpone events at any time. DLR will, of course, inform affected groups of visitors of changes to the schedule as quickly as possible. DLR is under no obligation to provide a tour in a particular way or at a particular time. As such, DLR asks for your understanding that any costs incurred, such as cancellation fees, cannot be reimbursed.
We would also like to point out that photography and filming is prohibited on DLR’s Stuttgart site.
