Guided tours

For those who have always wanted to know more about polymers

As we live in an age where plastics are part of our lives, we would like to reach out to all sections and ages of the population and take them on a journey through the world of polymers.

What we offer

Guided tours: We offer guided tours of the entire path for groups and individuals on the dates listed below. Duration approx. 1.5 - 2 hours. Please book by e-mail. If none of the dates are suitable, please contact us and we will find a solution.
Focus tours: You can also choose thematic focal points such as History & Applications, People & Environment or Research & Vision.
