The fieldtrip gives an overview about the geomorphological, geological and cultural historic aspects of Southern Poland. It is organized in collaboration with the Department of Physical Geography of the Wroclaw University. We are traveling by bus from Wrocalw to the Tatra Mountains in the south as well as the Ukrainian border in the southeast. The focus lies on a broad spectrum of physical geography, especially glacial geomorphology, geology and paleoenvironmental reconstructions. Nevertheless, historical and anthropogeographical topics such as the city geography of Wroclaw, Krakow, Sandomierz, and Zakopane will be addressed.

Traveling to and from Wroclaw needs the be organized by the students individually. There are numerous possibility by plane, train and Flixbus. The excursion will begin on the evening of 24th August and end on the evening of 3rd September.

The evaluation is based on an individual written assignment and a presentation during the seminar, as well as a thematic map that will be made in teamwork after the excursion.

To extend the amount of courses offered in English, this fieldtrip and accompanying seminar will be held in English. On demand, you can compose the written assignment and give the presentation in German.
