Have you already been amazed today?

Apart from the interactive exhibitions involving natural phenomena, there are also spectacular shows and special demonstrations for smaller audiences in Technorama.

Both present extraordinary experiments and provide fascinating insights. The shows and demonstrations take place twice a day in the lightning or gas arena.

On request, we offer shows and demonstrations for you and your group in French, Italian or English as well. Please enquire at the Information Desk.

Natural history of a lightning flash

A superlative demonstration! Tension runs high in this fascinating play with voltages and currents causing lightning to flicker and copper wires to evaoprate.

Gases – only a breath, but powerful

Gases are often perceived as "nothing". Experience this breath of nothing – bitterly cold and highly explosive!

Planet Earth – Cosmic Oasis

Come join us on a journey through time that passes through the most important stages of the origin of the universe and the Earth.

Demonstration: Superconductivity

A toy locomotive speeds around the curves, but without wheels or friction – without touching or tricks.

Demonstration: Laser Kiosk

"Lucid" experiments with an extraordinary light: what is a laser, actually?

Demonstration: Coriolis Carousel

And yet it moves! Astonishing phenomena are revealed when one earth day only lasts four seconds.


The shows in the Lightning or Gas arena and the „Planet Earth“ show in the Orbitarium each take place at 11.30 and 2.30 pm .

The Laser Kiosk, Superconductivity and Coriolis Carousel demonstrations are each at 11 am und 3.15 pm.

All shows and demonstrations are free of charge and held in German. Explanatory texts for the lightning and gas show are availabe in French, Italian and English. Please request them at the Information Desk.

You will find the presentation times and further activities in our daily programme.
