Over 60 scientific institutions will be opening their doors to the public on June 15th all across Berlin and Potsdam-Telegrafenberg. Events will cover the natural sciences, engineering, social and cultural studies, medicine and much more. Whether it’s in lectures, science shows or in hands-on experiments, there is much to discover and to learn at the Long Night of the Sciences, also in English. So how can you become a part of the smartest night of the year?

Although the vast majority of events are offered in German, our website can highlight events in English for you and help you compile your own personal route through the Night.
Additionally, Science is ever more an international endeavour. Many scientists are more than willing to explain their work or answer your questions in English.

Let yourself be surprised by new research, gather exciting insights and enjoy the smartest night of the year!
