From late afternoon to midnight over 70 scientific institutions across Berlin and Potsdam give an insight into their work, conduct exciting experiments and offer the latest research findings. There are more than 2000 events in research centres, institutes, laboratories and archives - from the natural sciences and engineering to politics and the humanities - that attract around 28,000 visitors every year.

Dialogue between science and citizens

What makes the Long Night of the Sciences so special is the personal encounter between scientists and citizens, the thrilling experience of discovering usually "hidden" places, and the vivid atmosphere of a nightly event. Above all, it's not only the visitors who learn a lot this night - the scientists, too, get inspiration and useful feedback from their dialogue with the public. Therefore discussion groups and join-in activities have increased from year to year, including over 300 events for children.

Shuttle bus service at the Long Night of the Sciences

A shuttle bus service along different routes makes it easy for participants to get from one venue to another. The service starts at 5 pm and ends at midnight and is free of charge for anyone who owns a ticket for the Long Night of the Sciences.
