The organization, content and rationale behind the ' Experimental Lecture General and Inorganic Chemistry ' as well as its theoretical ' Consolidation Lecture ' companion as the first contact of students in the B. Sc. program in Chemistry and Chemical Education as well as several others, i.e. Pharmacy, Geosciences, Molecular Medicine and Physics is described. To cope with the multifaceted demands on this first semester lecture series by several faculties, the experimental lecture is attended also by students from other fields. The companion lecture that addresses the advanced needs of chemists, consolidates the content of the experimental lecture by going more into detail and extends on the theories/concepts/reactions. An integrated interplay between experiment and theory is realized in our specially equipped lecture hall.
