Reopening of the Foyer



The foyer of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung reopened on January 25, 2010, once again it is open to all guests, staff members and scientists. After 4-month of renovation the light-filled space shines in new splendour and in addition to the coffee bar it hosts also the guest office. Centrally located in the main building and thus always involved in current events, the guest office has found a new perfect place. The lobby itself has a floor area of about 350 square meters, a wonderful view of nature and with plenty of seating options for our guests and staff an appropriate setting for discussion and motivating conversations.

Through the affiliated auditorium it is now possible to present scientific findings through workshops, conferences and seminars again. Even the popular series "Science for All" starts again on February 17. More information on "Science for All" you will find later on our website.

We invite you, take a virtual look at our foyer! Picture Gallery

By the way, the new coffee bar is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.!
