The Political Archive offers tours to groups from universities and academic institutions. In line with staff capacity, 5 – 20 participants are taken through the reading room and are shown the stacks. A pre-requisite for the tours is a specific interest in topics relating to the history of German diplomacy. A tour can be arranged to last between 60 and 90 minutes. Please send your application at least six weeks in advance.
Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming level of interest it is not currently possible to organise tours for other groups (particularly groups from schools and non-university adult education institutions) or individuals.
You can gain an insight into the holdings at the Federal Foreign Office on the Federal Government’s annual Open Day.
