Reservation for GSI/FAIR visit

This reservation will be valid at Tue 14-11-2023 between 10:00 - 12:00

ID card number (>16 years) - You will need a valid photo ID to enter the campus. If you provide your ID number here in advance, it will shorten and simplify the registration process at the gate. Privacy policy see below


Each visitor will be required to show a valid photo identification upon entry to the site. Please arrive punctually at the appointed time and allow an additional 15 minutes for access.

Due to the highly complex research facilities and processes, there may be changes to the operating schedule at short notice. We therefore ask for your understanding that we must reserve the right to cancel your tour appointment at any time. Should this very rare case occur, we will make every effort to find an alternative date with you. If you are late for your appointment, you may not be able to attend the tour. If access rules to the GSI/FAIR campus change due to the Corona pandemic, we may also have to cancel appointments. We ask for your understanding in these cases.

Guided tour appointments will take place with a minimum of ten participants. If there are not enough registrations for your appointment, we will inform you one week in advance.

Program of your guided tour

An introductory lecture offers you an overview of the facilities and the current research at GSI and in the future at FAIR. Afterwards the guided tour through the facility will take you to selected points of interest and you can have a look from the view point at the FAIR construction site. The total duration is approx. 2 hours.

During your visit our employees will guide you. Our guides strive to keep explanations comprehensible and suitable for your group.

Privacy Policy

We process your personal data, which you enter into this form, according to German Data Protection Law and only for the purposes to handle your request and potentially organise your guided tour.

We do not transmit your personal data to third parties. Also, your personal data is not being processed outside of Germany.

All of your personal data is only saved as long as it is needed for the purposes given above (handling your request or the services requested) unless we are obliged by law to save it for longer.


A visit of the GSI-facilites is free of charge. We are a publicly funded research institution. For this reason our tours are free of charge and may not be used commercially by third parties.

Persons with disabilities

The walkways during the visit are mostly at ground level and therefore suitable for wheelchair users. Please allow for longer walking distances (about 1000 meters). Persons with pacemakers are not allowed to enter all areas of the research facility. These areas are designated separately. Please inform us in advance if persons with disabilities or health impairments will be attending the tour.
