2,000 m² World of Adventure – 12 Time Zones – Interactive Stations

At Sonnenwelt Großschönau, visitors of all ages can playfully follow the history of the human race, generate electricity with their own physical strength and discover and understand the knowledge of millennia. The wisdom of ancient cultures is combined with the technology of the future.

The Indoor World of Adventure deals with topics such as energy and sustainability in an exciting, interactive and multimedia form. During the approx. 90-minute tour, visitors travel through twelve time zones. It starts with the Earth’s formation, continuing to the nomads, ancient Egyptians and Romans, before coming right up to the present day, and even going into the future.

The current special exhibition informs visitors about the many ways in which we could become independent from fossil fuels and use energy sustainably. You are invited to try out a variety of models which illustrate how these techniques work.

The Energy Adventure Playground in the outdoor area is freely accessible and invites you to linger.

A short film introduces our visitors to the topics presented at Sonnenwelt Großschönau. After that you go on a journey through time – either on your own with the help of a multimedia guide, or with a tour guide. Take your time: you can easily spend 1.5 hours with us!

On the journey through 12 time zones, visitors are always encouraged to participate, and thus time flies by. In the Media Lounge you can get additional information on the topics of building, renovating and renewable energy. For children, there are several puzzles, books and materials for handicrafts.


Special Exhibition:

Renewable Energies
