Alumni tours

Did you know that you can book campus tours specifically designed for HU alumni? Current students show you around one of the three campus (Mitte, Nord and Adlershof), outline the history of Humboldt-Universität and give you an insight into student life today.

The tours are a popular choice for class reunions, but can also be booked by individuals. The alumni team is happy to help you organize a tour. If desired, we can also arrange for an expert to accompany the tour. Ideally, this is an employee of your former institute or faculty, who can answer questions on your field of research and go into more detail regarding the development of your former institute or faculty. Take a seat in your old lecture hall and let your memories come alive again.

The tours usually last between 60 and 90 minutes. Alumni of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin are charged three Euro per person, minimum order value is 25 Euro. Tours after 4pm as well as on weekends cost an additional 50%. Please send your tour request under specification of the group size and a preferred date to the alumni office.



The alumni team invites alumni to attend exclusive events at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. This includes the Long Night of Sciences, the Sommerfest der Humboldt-Universität as well as interesting lectures on a variety of topics. To receive invitations you need to be registered in the Alumni-Portal.


Reduced rates for Sports and Recreation
