The most important things for teachers

We offer guided tours and training courses for school groups or entire year groups from the city of Cologne online via Zoom. We also offer several mentor training courses for interested teachers after the fall break, enabling you to teach your students the basics of using the USB Cologne. The guided tours for your groups of pupils will then take place by mutual agreement. If you are interested, please send us an e-mail:

If you would like to guide a group through the USB yourself, please register your tour in advance! They may not be conducted unannounced. We would also like to avoid scheduling conflicts with other guided tours in your interest. Registration for a guided tour by e-mail:
