Our guided tours for young visitors are packed with fun, with energy playing the lead.

Here is where children embark upon a variegated journey in time to learn about energy and heating, with plenty of play along the way. There is a choice of interactive games, such as building your own energy-saving house or generating energy by muscle power alone and bringing water to the boil in different-sized vessels. Our team at Brennpunkt° will also take care of teachers’ special requests too.

Senior citizens

For the older generation too there is much to see and learn at Brennpunkt°. For many of them a guided tour is a trip in time, back to their own childhood. They may still remember the old "scorching stovepipes", the heavy coals that had to be lugged from the basement to the floors above or the visits to the public baths. This is an opportunity to better appreciate the new technologies which have become a matter of course for many of us.
