Guided Tours

At the start of every semester, the Mannheim University Library offers guided tours of all libraries to all first-year students and anyone who is interested. You can also schedule guided tours for groups at the InfoCenter.

The library staff will show you the libraries’ locations and services and give you an overview of the subject-specific library relevant to your program of study.

Welcome Back on Campus! At the start of lectures in the autumn/winter semester 2022/23, we will once again be offering guided tours of the University Library. All information and dates can be found here!

Digital library tour
