The Lab

Café Bistrot

Research doesn't just happen in test tubes, microscopes or in front of computers. From time to time, everyone needs a change of scenery.

The Lab café offers space to think, chat, celebrate or simply to switch off. From a steaming, dark espresso, to cappuccino and a croissant, or an aperitif, a plate of pasta with fresh vegetables or a more formal lunch: The "Lab" has all tastes and occasions covered. In winter, a glass facades invite the sun in and allow you to let your mind wander. In summer the space opens up so you can soak up the sun and fresh air on the large terrace by the river. Drinks and food are local and fresh wherever possible. The interior and atmosphere are sustainable, open, friendly and modern.
