Experiments with weightlessness are conducted here. The top of the tower serves as a function room.
The Fallturm drop tower at Bremen University is 146 metres high, with a 110-metre tube that allows experiments to be carried out in zero-gravity conditions. It can produce up to ten seconds of free fall, making Bremen's drop tower a unique scientific facility and an important part of aerospace research.
There are spectacular views across Bremen from the top of the drop tower, and the rooms can be hired for functions and meetings. The Guardian newspaper described the Panorama Room as a 'James Bond lounge' due to its location and furnishings.
About the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity
If you want to find out more about the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM), then join the guided tour. Please note that the top of the drop tower is not included in the tour. The tour sheds light on the phenomenon of weightlessness and tells you all you need to know about the ZARM. An easy-to-follow presentation and some short hands-on experiments demonstrate how weightlessness affects us on a day-to-day basis. Did you know that you use weightlessness to serve soup without spilling it? You will also be granted a look inside the integration hall.
