Preventive measure: Universum® is temporarily closed

To support the deceleration of the spreading of the coronavirus, the Universum® temporarily closes its doors. This preventive measure in consultation with Senator for Economic Affairs, Labour and Europe will be implemented by the Universum® for the common good. Thus all events of the science centre during this period are also cancelled. We are going to announce on our website how we will proceed after that date. Schools and pre-schools which already planned visits will be informed by phone. All owners of a season ticket can extend the ticket for the time of the closure as soon as the Universum® is reopened. Here you can find questions and answers about the temporary closure.
