The Uniseum invites to five discovery tours in the city center and on the Schlossberg hill


The Uniseum of the University of Freiburg is offering a special highlight for the city's anniversary in 2020/21: Under the motto "Uniseum goes public", the museum is organizing city walks to university sites in the city. A total of five discovery tours will take place between July 1 and July 24, 2021.
