Campus Location

The TNF Tower is the tallest building on campus, located between the Kopfgebäude Building and the "Technikum" technical center. The Somnium was completed in May 2019 and serves as an observation deck atop the TN Tower. There is also an event and seminar room. The construction included approximately 130 tons of steel. The addition of climbing plants gives the Somnium a green outer feature that brings science together with Mother Nature.

The Somnium

Rendering Somnium

The TN Tower (Faculty of Engineering & Natural Sciences) is the tallest building on campus. By heightening the TN Tower and adding the "Somnium" platform, the Johannes Kepler University will have an attractive, widely visible landmark offering a spectacular bird’s eye view.  Named after a narrative by Johannes Kepler about a journey to the moon, the "Somnium" platform will be an open steel grate construction featuring plants and a floating platform with a sun sail. The space will serve as a viewing platform and a think-tank space.

The Somnium has been publicly accessible since June 5, 2019. If you are booking in advance for an event, you can schedule a viewing time outside of these hours.
So: Up you go!
