DKRZ does not just facilitate leading climate research, it also informs the public, the media, politicians, and experts about new findings in climate research and its in-house services. Around a thousand visitors come each year, including many school children interested in climate change, climate simulations, and supercomputers

For interested groups such as e.g. school classes we give a lecture on climate simulations and high performance computing at DKRZ. Afterwards you can take a guided tour through our computer hall.  If interested, we also organize such events jointly with the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology.

Currently, we expect all visitors to wear a medical mask throughout the event.
