European Astronaut Centre (EAC) Cologne

The training centre of the European aerospace

The European Astronaut Centre in Cologne is where the heart of manned European aerospace beats: Astronauts and cosmonauts from all over the world are prepared here for their space mission to the international space station ISS.

The EAC offers you the unique opportunity to present your company in the authentic world of astronauts – in a high-tech setting in the midst of spaceship modules and training facilities. You can experience the fascination of outer space here first hand together with your guests: either in action in a docking manoeuvre with a Soyuz capsule on the ISS – or in conversation with experienced instructors and astronauts.
