Moderne Physik für alle

Zwischen Brötchen und Borussia

The lecture series "Zwischen Brötchen und Borussia" is aimed at the interested public - adults as well as children and young people - and provides information in an entertaining way about unusual topics and issues which have a wider connection with physics. The lectures take place on Saturday mornings and are typically given by speakers from the immediate vicinity of TU Dortmund University.

At the same time, the program is aimed at schools and participants of the Studium Fundamentale at TU Dortmund University. Pupils can acquire a so-called Schülerdiplom ("pupils diploma") by successful participation in a quiz, students receive a corresponding module certificate.

Course of events

The lectures will each last one hour and, due to the current situation, will take place for the first time as an online stream with live chat.

The lecture will run from 10:45 a.m. as a YouTube premiere, but will still be available online later. You will find the access link to the video in time on the detail pages of the respective lecture. During this premiere, the speaker and Prof. Dr. Metin Tolan will be available for questions in a live chat. A (free) YouTube account is required to participate. After the talk, you will need to switch to a Zoom room to discuss live with the speaker. We will link the zoom room for the discussion on the detail pages of each event.

The quiz for the lecture will also take place online this semester and will be unlocked on the event website 15 minutes before the lecture begins and disabled 30 minutes after the event.


The first three lectures in the summer semester 2021 will be produced in advance at TU Dortmund University and published as part of a YouTube premiere at the times mentioned. The last event of the summer semester 2021 on 07/17 (Show of the PHYSIKANTEN) will be broadcast live or - if possible - performed live.

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.
