Guided tours during the Corona pandemic

The guided tours on the first Sunday of each month start at 2 p.m. on the grounds of the historic earthquake observatory, including the fall of the Mintrop sphere. Registrations are not required – but welcome. The current corona rules apply. We ask that you wear an FFP2 mask (from 14 years) indoors.

For larger tours, smaller groups will be formed to visit the interior rooms. Depending on the weather, as much of the tour as possible will take place outside – please make sure you wear weatherproof clothing.

Living history of science

Since taking over the site as the association “Wiechert’sche Erdbebenwarte Göttingen e.V.”, we have endeavoured to open the area to interested people to make the history of science come alive.

To be honest, we did not expect such huge crowds of families, groups, interested people and scientists over the years. Their enthusiasm has constantly motivated us to stick to our commitment, which we gladly did.

Guided tours on the first Sunday of each month

This is why a guided tour of the buildings and the site takes place on the first Sunday of each month from 2.00 p.m., the highlight being the drop of the four-tonne Mintrop ball.


In addition, we organise guided tours for interested people and groups. Please let us know your preferences using the form “Your visit”.
