Lindau Science Trail

In the footsteps of Nobel laureates


Let us take you on a city walk

After Stockholm, Lindau is the city with the highest number of Nobel Prize winners among its guests. Since 1951, every year around 30 award-winning top researchers gather for a dialogue with young scientists from all over the world in the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. The Lindau Science Trail takes ground-breaking discoveries – and the people behind them – into the streets of Lindau. Archimedes developed the concept and the design as well as an accompanying app for the Science Trail.

On 21 “knowledge pylons” in Lindau and on the island of Mainau, the Science Trail presents Nobel Prize-winning scientific discoveries in an accessible way. Visitors and residents of the city can explore stories and background knowledge from all Nobel Prize disciplines: physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, economics, and even the Nobel Peace Prize.

Client: Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings e.V.  |  Exhibition Space: 21 knowledge pylons in Lindau and Mainau Island  |  Opening: June 2017  |  Languages: German | English

Projekt Highlight

The digital guide

Meet the Nobel laureates virtually

Accompanying the Science Trail, Archimedes has developed an app: the digital guide to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. The app provides a compact overview of topics and places on the Science Trail, so that a walk through Lindau can be planned according to personal interest. Augmented reality brings the trail to life. At selected stations, famous Nobel laureates explain their groundbreaking discoveries to the visitors. There is even the possibility to take a picture with them. After a long day in Lindau, the Nobel Prize Quiz invites you to test your new knowledge.

The app is available for free on iOS and Android here.
