Hands-on mathematics

Challenging puzzles, giant soap bubbles, deceiving mirrors, mysterious bridges and more: Check out the fun side of mathematics and put your hands on more than 150 interactive exhibits. The Mathematikum in Gießen appeals to people of all ages and is the perfect destination for your family weekend.

Experience a different side of mathematics! “Hand-on” is our first objective, which allow you to get really involved and experience surprising phenomena on your own.

How can a bridge be constructed without using any nails, glue, ropes or other tools? How is rolling dice related to Mozart’s compositions?

Being amazed is the first step to get behind mathematical secrets.
Our different, and very playful way of dealing with mathematics helps to overcome any fears people might have recalling their experiences with mathematics in school.

The Mini-Mathematikum is a section dedicated to 4-8 year old kids. Here you find exhibits that are specially designed to meet the needs of younger children.
In the morning Mini-Mathematikum is reserved for groups; it is open to the public from 3pm on weekdays and all day long during the Mathematikum opening hours on weekends and holidays.
