Science Holidays at the University of Vienna

Surprise! A day of holiday with science is waiting for children aged 7 to 12 years!
Within the framework of the Science Holidays, University of Vienna invites you to a day camp in the main building: 45 days from July 6 to  September 4 – from monday to friday!
The programme is all about what a holiday is expected to be: new experience and a relaxing time!

Children get an insight into the world of science, discover the place of the university and after many weeks in which everything was different, spend a cosy, fun, relaxing and inspiring day in one of the most beautiful buildings in Vienna! This is how holidays should be!

Who knows what is still missing here? The answer is right: children!

We all had an exhausting and unusual time – especially children. So what could be better than a holiday in places you don’t know yet? Join us and enjoy an unforgettable day at the University of Vienna – Main building.

In our backpackers we have everything that makes a holiday so special:
You will playfully discover the University of Vienna and get to know people who are connected with the university. We will experience adventures together as we travel through various scientific disciplines. With videos, audios and quizzes we dive deep into exciting research areas. Vacation means “event” but also “relaxing times”. That’s why we certainly don’t miss out on fun, fresh air and outdoor activities.
A day of holidays always goes by far too quickly! So you can continue your research at home with the research diary! And what would a journey be without a postcard? Share your experiences with family and friends.
