At the Mainz Microtron MAMI hypernuclei can be produced by (e,e′K) reactions. A dedicated kaon spectrometer positioned at 0deg; with respect to the incident electron beam is used to tag events involving strangeness production. By measuring the momenta of pions from two body weak decays one gains direct access to the ground state masses of the produced hyperfragments. In this contribution the motivation of the experiment and the experimental challenges are presented.
