Class and group tours are offered for school students in grades 1-13, students from universities, vocational and technical schools, student groups, and other interested parties. Topics generally addressed are the work of the Carl-Schurz-Haus and how to use the library, but other topics, such as an introduction to the use of our online catalog and the eLibrary USA database collection or information about student exchange possibilities, can also be arranged in advance. Groups will of course be given the opportunity to ask questions. After the tour, teachers/group leaders are welcome to use our space to continue discussions about US-related topics.

Tours can be given in German or in English and are free of charge.

To make an appointment, please send us an email at studienberatung(at) or call us at 0761-556527-18. Tours work best outside our normal hours of operation, i.e. before 11:30, or between 13.30 and 15.00.
