Guided Tours

Eine Führung durch die Primatenhaltung

From Monday to Friday we offer guided tours for school classes (from the 10th grade on) and other groups of at least 10 persons (minimum age: 15 years). We usually start a tour by giving a short introduction into our research areas and then visit the primate housings. If you are interested in a talk on a specific topic from the fields of Infectious Diseases, Stem Cell Research, Genetics, or Brain Sciences, please do not hesitate to contact Heike Klensang.
