Round about Murnau, you will gain insights into the fascinating world of science and technology. Discover historic achievements and current developments in this field. Worldwide communication and renewable energy are topics that are important to us all that you may even find answers for here: at the Erdfunkstelle Raisting (a station for radio, television and data communications) and Erlebniskraftwerk Walchensee (power plant with an educational visitor centre). And at the Segelflugzentrum Ohlstadt (glider airfield) you can hang around on the ground where it's less risky and admire the technical jewels in the hangar or sail above the clouds.
Satellite radio communications in Germany had their beginnings in Raisting. Futuristic antennas and radio systems protrude from the picture-book landscape of the alpine foothills.
Huge volumes of water plunge into the depths. The result: Electric power. The technology of the Walchensee Lake power station is totally unique despite its old age. A must-do for visitors with an interest in technology.
Sail above the clouds, over the Alps and the Murnauer Moos peat bog, or, instead, hang around on the ground where it's less risky and admire the technical jewels in the hangar – you can do both at the gliding centre in Ohlstadt.
