Senckenberg Museum

Senckenberg Museum,
inspired by eternity

Few other places show the value of knowledge, research and nature as vividly as the Senckenberg Museum. This is a true Frankfurt institution and one of the greatest and most important natural science museums in Europe. The Senckenbergturm is under construction right next to the eponymous museum.

Development Quartier

from big bang
to best location

Just a few seconds and the 116m high Frankfurt University Tower (AfE-tower) fell like a house of cards. This was the highest building to be demolished by explosives in the whole of Europe. The sensational big bang in 2014 heralded the transformation of the university site in Bockenheim into the Senckenberg- Quartier and into a vibrant cultural quarter (Kulturcampus).

Work & Life Quarter

do more of what makes you happy

The new Senckenberg-Quartier is a vibrant neighbourhood with spectacular prospects. The Senckenberg-Quartier neighbourhood was conceived based upon the principles of diffusion and permeability.
