Discover our sustainable research and green campus by bike. Our five-kilometre sustainability tour entitled “Energy and Climate” will give you insights into energy and climate research at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

We welcome groups of ten to twenty participants.


The programme starts with a presentation on Forschungszentrum Jülich. Then, the group will set off on a five-kilometre bike tour taking a flat and easy route around the two-sqaure-kilometre campus with its some 100,000 trees. The group will stop at several locations to visit research institutesand gain insights into their current research on climate- and energy-related topics. The tour will take a total of two hours, of which 45 minutes will be spent cycling.

We provide good-quality bikes free of charge. However, you can also come on your own bicycle.

We recommend you wear comfortable clothing and shoes to suit the weather on the day. Please note that the tour will take place regardless of the weather. You can bring soft drinks for the tour.

The provisions of the official Road Traffic Regulations apply on the campus of Forschungszentrum Jülich. These do not prescribe that bicycle helmets be worn. In the interest of your own safety, however, we recommend you bring your own helmet. On request, we can provide you with bicycle helmets with a hygienic paper lining.
