Review: Open Day on July 08, 2023

A big THANK YOU to everyone who was there, we were very happy about the great interest! Our canteen tours alone were fully booked and we are pleased that we were able to give you a glimpse behind the scenes of our canteen on the Adenauerring.
In the ballroom, one could experience 100 years of history of the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe in pictures accompanied by music. Get great prizes on the wheel of fortune and find out more about offers and services from the Studierendenwerk and the Studierendenwerk as an employer at various information stands. Our guests had a wide choice of gastronomy: from our own brands [kœri]werk®, [pizza]werk®, [pasta]werk® to crêpes and a wine stand as well as other soft drinks. There was a bouncy castle and face painting for the children and creative photos were taken as souvenirs in front of the photo wall. You can also find more insights from the day on our Instagram channel @studierendenwerk_karlsruhe.
