Germany’s only meteorology and aerology museum shows rare treasures from 100 years of weather research. See selected historic meteorological measuring tools, radiosondes and kites at a traditional location of aerology. The kites are presented impressively in balloon hall 2 of the weather museum, and they bear witness to more than a century in the history of ascent technology for elevation measurements. Thanks to our cooperation with the Richard Assmann Observatory, visitors can experience close up, how a modern-day weather balloon is launched. Tip: See listed and historically important buildings and properties on a walk through Lindenberg along the guidance and information system.
The weather museum has lots to offer for geologists, too, as the climate of our planet causes changes to entire stretches of land. Lindenberg is a traditional location of the field of aerology. The village is home to one of two observatories of the German Weather Service. The Lindenberg Meteorological Observatory was founded by Richard Assmann in 1905 as the ‘Royal Prussian Aeronautical Observatory’. It played a major role in the development of aviation and research into the upper air layers. The weather museum focusses on presenting the pioneering research work of the Lindenberg Observatory during the first century of its existence, as well as highlighting the Observatory’s current important role.
