Roman Thermea Zülpich – Museum der Badekultur (Museum of Bathing Culture),


How about a cultural wave ride through 2,000 years of the history of bathing?
The Romans loved wellness, combined with sociability and conversation. Body care and hygiene were an absolute must, and a visit to the thermal spa was simply a part of everyday life. It was no different in Zülpich. Its luxurious Roman baths have remained particularly well preserved to this day and a modern museum with a permanent exhibition has been built over them. Modern technology and high-quality replicas breathe new life into the ancient walls and the original findings. The objects on display range from original Roman toilet articles to the facilities found in a medieval bathroom, curious inventions of recent centuries up to modern day beach fashion and contemporary bathroom design. There are also changing special exhibitions and events.

The ancient town of Zülpich was a settlement along the Roman road from Trier to Cologne and is now part of the Via Agrippa, a cycle and hiking trail in “Erlebnisraum Römerstraße” (Roman Road Adventure Experience).

LVR-Freilichtmuseum Kommern

History comes alive at the LVR open-air museum in Kommern: Chickens run around between the houses and peck at the ground, cattle graze peacefully in the pasture and fresh bread smells waft from the bakery. Visitors can wander through five different assemblies and their buildings. The journey through time in the Rhineland begins at the end of the 15th century and ends with the 20th century. Exhibitions and various festivals and markets, such as the Anno Dazumal fair, round off the museum experience.

Radioteleskop Effelsberg

With a diameter of 100 metres, the Radio Telescope Effelsberg is one of the largest fully mobile radio telescopes on earth.  Since its commissioning in 1972, the company has continuously worked on improving its technology (e. g. B. a new surface of the antenna dish, better receivers for high-quality data, extremely lownoise electronics) so that even today it is still considered one of the most modern telescopes in the world.
