On this page you will find an overview of the event formats that regularly take place at the Physics Institute. All current dates are displayed in the event calendar.

Event categories

The results of current physics research are presented at several regularly scheduled events as well as at many special events.

Physics Colloquium

Renowned scientists lecture on current topics in physics.

Bethe Colloquium

The focus of this event is on current research in theoretical physics presented by distinguished scientists.


Seminars with different focal points offer the opportunity to learn about the latest research results:

Bachelor's, master's, doctoral and post-doctoral colloquia

Colloquia on various projects in different research areas are held regularly:

Journal Clubs

Significant publications from different areas of physics research are presented and discussed at the respective Journal Clubs.


Wolfgang Paul was professor of physics at Physikalisches Institut of University of Bonn from 1952 to 1993. In remembrance of Wolfgang Paul highly distinguished physicists are regularly invited to give the Wolfgang Paul Lecture at the institute. This lecture series is made possible by the Wolfgang Paul foundation which was generously supported by himself with half of his Nobel Prize money.

Other events of the Department


Lectures and other courses in physics for the various majors can be found on the website of the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Lab Courses

During the laboratory practicals in the physics program, students can deepen the material learned in the lectures and acquire experimental skills.

Outreach events

"Outreach" events provide an opportunity for a broad audience to immerse themselves in the world of physics and to be exposed to topics of current research.
