The Alfred Wegener Museum in Zechlinerhütte has been in our area of responsibility since 2009.
Alfred Wegener (1880-1930) spent his childhood vacations here. He was a “Viking of science” who wanted to uncover the secrets of nature with his own observations. He originated the theory of plate tectonics and undertook four journeys in the polar region. He died on his major Greenland expedition of 1930.
The museum presents the researcher’s life and sensitizes viewers to issues of climate change.
