experimenta –
The science center

At experimenta, you can get to the bottom of things. Natural science and technology can be experienced by everyone. In our exhibition, you discover the world and always something new – regardless of whether you are three or one-hundred-and-three.

In a unique combination of planetarium and theater, in our Science Dome, you travel virtually to unknown places. Or you experience how exciting science can be in our experimental shows. In well-equipped labs, you conduct your own experiments and turn your ideas into reality in the Maker Space.

In this one-of-a-kind place, we facilitate experiences and knowledge together.
