An Excursion into Adventure for the Curious

Marvel at a six metre high fire tornado, create a ring of clouds, operate electrical devices through pure muscle power or lie comfortably on a bed of nails like a fakir: on an exciting day at the phaeno Science Center in Wolfsburg, children and adults will find their curiosity awakened as they experience the secrets of over 350 extraordinary natural phenomena. There is something for everyone at the phaeno and best of all: it’s you yourself who helps to determine and influence the whole process.

The joy of discovery leads you through interesting subjects such as energy, maths, dynamics, intuition or life. With regularly changing special exhibitions there is always something new to explore and a visit to phaeno is worthwhile every single time.

This impressive building was designed by the renowned architect Zaha Hadid. Outside, the structure towers high above the street; inside, a land of adventure unfolds - a perfect setting for the discovery of the many exhibits from the worlds of natural sciences and technology.
