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 think tank space.

Check it out for yourself! Starting from 5. June 2019, the Somnium is open to the public. If you are booking in advance for an event, you can schedule a viewing time outside of these hours.
So: up you go!
