360 Degrees - Thuringia Goes Digital

You have never seen Thuringia like this before

The new Discovery World at Erfurt's Central Station opens on 8 December. The style of the classic Tourist Information Centre has been completely revamped with new digital additions. A new Thuringia experience - in Germany's first digital showroom.


Get to know Thuringia in authentic films. KUKA takes you on a trip around Thuringia.


The KUKA table is very simple to operate and young and old can learn more about Thuringia on a number of different tours. Neither have we forgotten our visitors with a disability. Induction loops for hearing aids and film sub-titles are available and the robot can easily be operated by wheelchair users too. For those with a visual impairment, care has been taken to provide high contrasts.


The KUKA robot is the centrepiece in the "Die Lichtung" ("The clearing") room and features clear lines and an elegant design.


Panoramic view: A 360-degree film provides breathtaking and unusual insights. With a VR headset, you can float over Thuringia and discover the state from a bird's eye view.


Good advice: Even in a digital experience, our visitors still require individual and personal advice. Including selected brochures, souvenirs and tickets for our best events.


The 360 Degrees Discovery World presents Thuringia as an attractive German state for people to live, work and travel in. Inspiring places, breathtaking insights and the latest technologies but also very personal advice provide an innovative service experience. In as many as three rooms, you can discover Thuringian places of inspiration and definitive cultural history, together with fascinating landscapes and local personages.

Der gute Rat (Good advice)

Despite many sophisticated technical facilities, personal advice is still the first priority. In the room "Der gute Rat" ("Good Advice), we will be pleased to answer all your questions about Thuringia as a holiday state. You will be given info material and brochures and can buy Thuringian products to remind you of your visit to us.

Die Lichtung (The clearing)

With the help of the KUKA robot in the room "Die Lichtung" ("The Clearing"), you can undertake a number of video tours around Thuringia. The KUKA pays live visits to tourist highlights on a 3D relief. Life-size silhouettes of Martin Luther, Johann Sebastian Bach and Walter Gropius talk about what attracts them to Thuringia.

Der Weitblick (The panoramic view)

"Der Weitblick" (The panoramic view) forms the bridge between reality and virtual reality. Take a seat on comfortable armchairs in the middle of the room and plunge into Thuringia's diversity. Thanks to virtual reality, you can fly over tourist attractions. During your flight, you can discover, for example, Wartburg Castle and the Merchants' Bridge or explore towns like Erfurt, Weimar and Gotha.


360 Degrees – Thuringia Goes Digital - we look forward to meeting you!
