There are events offered to the public on a regular basis at the Wuppertal Institute's aula. You get to that part of the building easiest via the yard (main entrance, first mezzanine, exit to the yard). The Wuppertal Institute only has a parking area for two visitor cars, but it is very well served by public transport. If you are attending a workshop or project meeting, please come to the front desk (main entrance ground floor).

Use the library

The Wuppertal Institute's library serves mainly to support the work of institute employees, but visitors are also welcome (please contact the Librarian beforehand). The library's stock currently consists of about 20,000 books, 180 magazines and journals and 500 electronic media.
Visiting hours are: Mo. – Thu. 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Fri. 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
