About our Host

The host for the 2022 Ecsite Conference is experimenta, Germany's largest science centre, situated in the heart of the city of Heilbronn next to the river Neckar in Southern Germany. A new spectacular building constructed of glass and steel is joined to the old restored storage building of a former oil mill. Its Science Dome is a unique combination of theater and planetarium with a 360° surround 3D dome projection screen as well as a revolving auditorium. On the top of the science centre is an observatory. In the permanent exhibition, visitors can explore new discoveries and carry out experiments at 275 interactive exhibits. Additional space is provided for special exhibitions. In four creative studios, visitors can discover their talents in several hands-on workshops on media and engineering. Experimenta also has a wide variety of laboratories offering programmes for classes as well as for individuals, from kindergarten age to secondary school students as well as for adults. The Maker Space is a place where young inventors can design, experiment, build and interact with each other. The science stage offers special programmes designed for children up to the age of 10. In the student research centre, young explorers are guided through their first scientific projects.
