A one hour trip to the Eastern parts of Styria showed us the typical landscape called Oststeirisches Hügelland with wooded hills and small villages.

This ecological park combines science, business and adventure. Within three hours we visited:

the Experimentarium: We had a guided tour by the head of the science centre, Dr. Adolf Heschl, in the Experimentarium, a small science centre for physics, chemistry, biology and environmental topics.

Students as well as teachers could try a lot of experiments by their own. The interactive exhibition invites people to touch, to try, to play and to understand experiments in science and technology.

Main topics of the current exhibition:

  • Kosmology:  from the beginnings of the universe to Einstein
  • Boubble dome:  geometry, bubbles and architecture
  • Energy: common and new technologies of energy production, efficiency of new technologies, etc.
