Visit selected historical meteorological measuring instruments, radiosondes and kites at a traditional aerological site. The latter are impressively presented in the Balloon Hall 2 of the Weather Museum and bear witness to the more than 100-year history of ascent techniques for height measurements. In cooperation with the Richard-Aßmann-Observatorium you will experience a weather balloon ascent today. Tip: Take a walk through Lindenberg along the signage and information system and look at listed and historically important buildings and properties.

The Weather Museum also has a lot to offer geologists, because the climate of our planet is changing entire regions. Lindenberg is a traditional location in aerology. Here is one of two observatories of the German Weather Service. The Meteorological Observatory Lindenberg was founded in 1905 by Richard Aßmann as the "Royal Prussian Aeronautical Observatory" and was of great importance for the development of aviation and the exploration of the higher air layers. The main focus of the Weather Museum's activities is to make accessible the pioneering research work of the Lindenberg Observatory in the first century of its existence, but also to show the special significance of the Observatory today.
