You can hear the full story and even more about the university’s history on the historical campus tour on Wednesday, July 18. Sign up now, because this tour is limited to only 20 participants!Read More

In monumental historical buildings, in old factories and even on the street – one may find the performing arts everywhere in Hamburg. There are Cabarets and Varietés in „St. Pauli“, the „HafenCity“ or the „Kampnagel“-factory in the less central quarter of „Winterhunde“ and there is even an English Theatre in the „Mundsburg“ district.

So if you need a break from presentations, poster sessions and scientific discussions, have a look at iFormations in the main building west wing.Read More
