Day of the Open Door

Every two years, the two Max Planck Institutes in Martinsried open their doors to the public. The next Day of the Open Door will be at November 21st 2020.

Take a look behind the scenes: Our scientists are happy to answer your questions regarding the development and function of the brain and nervous system and take you into the world of the body's machines – the proteins. Lectures and lab tours show the diversity of current research topics. In our hands-on laboratory, the MaxLab, visitors of all ages are able to don the lab coat themselves. In between events, visitors can relax in our science cinema or stroll through our photo exhibit and the drawings of the elementary school contest with the topic "What is my body actually made of?“

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Some of the lab tours are in English and of course, all of our scientists and staff speak English. The bus 266 will run as often as during the week. Free parking space is available. For your kindergarden children, we offer a separate short-term supervision. Our canteen and cafeteria are open throughout the day.
