6 pm Lecture: A History of the Universe in 100 Stars
Do you know how many stars there are? More than you can imagine - and they all tell stories about the universe. For example, thanks to the observation of the star Gamma Draconis, we know that the Earth rotates on its axis. The star 61 Cygni has told us how big the cosmos is. Stars take us on a search for extraterrestrial life, explain how black holes work and why dinosaurs became extinct.
Speaker: Dr Florian Freistetter (astronomer, science author, blogger and podcaster, Baden, Austria)
7.30 pm Guided hike to the site where the sky disc was found on Mittelberg Mountain
On the hike there is information about other archaeological sites as well as the art trail "Between World and Cosmos".
On the way: wine tasting at three stations
With Johannes Beyer (Beyer Winery, Laucha)
21.30 Watching the sunset on the Mittelberg

Cost: €29.50, reduced €25.00, incl. wine tasting
Registration required

Please note:
Nebra Ark is open until 30 September 2022. In October, the visitor centre will close due to major renovation and extension work. The Arche Nebra team will still be there for you: For the time of the closure, there are bookable offers in the outdoor area and a creative competition. The site where the Nebra Sky Disk was found will remain accessible in any case. Please check the website www.himmelsscheibe-erleben.de for the progress of the work. The reopening of Nebra Ark is planned for June 2023.
