    At Technopolis there is a new scientific adventure around every corner. One minute you're cycling in the air and the next you're standing in a huge soap bubble or taking a nap on a nail bed. And the minute you've recovered from one adventure, you're already off to the next, such as putting a plane safely to the ground, while you still hear the scratch sounds you just made as a DJ.

    Are you in for a pinch of new technologies? Paraglide in virtual reality or climb to the top using augmented reality. For the real adventurers there now is the Mendeleev game! Along with a second gamer, you look for chemical elements in everyday objects. But not just anywhere, you do so in space.

    Feast your eyes during on one of our spectacular science shows and demos that will make your hair stand up straight. Literally! Do you want to perform experiments like a real lab technician or a creative DIY-er? One address: the Lab and Workshop!

    Discovering, experimenting, exploring: anything goes at Technopolis! There is only one golden rule: you must try everything yourself at least once! That's how you make the best discoveries and how you'll learn about science and technology without even realising it.
