Whether as an individual, small or large group - here you will find

ZARM - Center of applied space technology and microgravity

The drop tower Bremen. How does it work and what happens within?

Let us clarify these questions by means of an easy to understand presentation (in german) where you can also test your understanding with small hand experiments.

Following this we will make a tour through the integration hall where real microgravity experiments are prepared, take a look at the drop tower deceleration chamber (availability depending on date and time according to operational schedule) and close with a peek at our prototype of a moon/mars station.

We propose a minimum age of 12 years for the individual tours. Total duration of the tours is 75 - 90 minutes. School classes (Grades 11-13) will be guided by scientific staff.

Unfortunately a tour to the top of the tower is not part of the tour. However, there are options out of the standard operational/working hours, see (drop tower tip) for details.

Presentations/tours in english are subject to staff availability.

Different group options and rates:

agreed Appointments on workdays:

School class (from 11th-13th grade) up to 25 personsfree of charge
Group of up to 15 persons 200 EUR flat
