"Winter Academy"


The Winterakademie Physik ("Winter Academy for Physics") of the Faculty of Physics at TU Dortmund University is aimed at interested pupils from year 10 upwards. At the academy, participants can directly experience how physicists work and how the study of physics is structured. In exciting lectures, researchers report on their work at TU Dortmund University. In 2022, the motto of the Winter Academy will be "From Big Bang & Big Data". In particular, we want to make it possible to experience the close connection between the exploration of the world on a large and very small scale, from elementary particles to the Big Bang, using modern methods of artificial intelligence and machine learning. The event will take place purely digitally via Zoom.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.



From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
