Open Day

On this day, the Institute opens its laboratories and greenhouses and offers visitors an exciting look behind its scenes.


On Open Day visitors of the IPK are invited to examine interesting places as well as the scientific work of the Institute via guided tours, for example to the Nationwide Ex Situ Gene Bank, the perennial garden, our greenhouses and laboratories or the botanical reference collections.


The IPK scientists also report by poster presentations, during laboratory tours and lectures about their research topics, scientific methods and the technology used therein. Guests can thereby put their questions to the scientists and are also invited themselves to act as plant scientists or modern microscopes to take a trip into the interior of plant cells.
