Excursion to Siemens:

The industrial park of Siemens in Karlsruhe stands for research and innovation and is more than worth seeing. During our visit we receive a short introduction (safety briefing, facts / figures / facts, digitization history: topic simulation etc.), followed by a production tour. This provides insight into the current manufacturing strategy of Siemens. We also visit the innovation lab and get an introduction of apps from the Siemens Cloud , which are used as digital assistants in the manufacturing processes.


Excursion to Precitec:

Precitec deals with all topics related to lasers. From FineCutter to SpeedCutter to MiniCutter, they have a suitable laser cutter for every situation. With cutting widths of only 10μm or speeds of 140m / min, everyone will find what they need. They also offer high-quality laser welding and optical measuring technology, for example interferometric sensors and chromatic sensors.

Diner at “Badisches Brauhaus”:

On the evening of the first day we would like to spend a convivial evening with you. The “Badisch Brauhaus” offers home-brewed beer, Baden-Swabian specialties and an inviting ambience. We have reserved  from 19 clock. The costs will be paid by yourself in this evening


Die city centre of Karlsruhe:

Karlsruhe city center invites you to discovery and exploration with its well-kept old town. Numerous places and the castle in the center with the corresponding park await you. Our hostel is close to the center and promises short walking distances to move in the city.

Excursion to Daimler: (only in German)

At Daimler, we gonna visit the manufacture “Wörth”.  After an short introduction in the customer center, a factory-owned bus brings us into production. Here, the areas of cab shell construction, interior fitting construction and the final assembly will be visited until the finished vehicles roll off the conveyor belt. So if you have never visited a factory of an automobile manufacturer, this is the right place to see!
