Open day at Chemelot

On Saturday, October 1, Chemelot will open its gates to local residents and interested parties, during the Weekend of Science.

Have you always wanted to know exactly what Chemelot is all about, how safe it is here and what our 200 companies and 60 plants produce? Then now is your chance...! We have planned fun and also (dis)exciting activities for young and old.


  • A bus tour of our Chemelot site
  • Demonstrations by our company fire brigade
  • Guided tours of our laboratories with the opportunity to do your own experiments
  • A campus scavenger hunt for 10 to 16 year olds
  • The 'Brightlands lane'
  • Masterclasses on innovation & sustainability  
  • Meet your new employer
  • And much more...!

At 10:30h Chemelot will open its gates. Registration for our Open Day is required, as we can only accommodate a maximum number of visitors. We can't accommodate everyone at the same time, so we ask you to choose a time slot when you arrive at Chemelot. Once inside you may stay until 17:00.

At Chemelot, safety has the highest priority. That is why we apply a minimum age of 10 years.

Come to our Open Day  and go on a journey of discovery!
