3D relief globes:
a hands-and-eyes-on experience of our earth

Is it possible to rebuild the unique fingerprint of our earth – the relief – in detail?

relief globe – grasp the earth

fascination of the relief

The geo-institut has developed a globe, which makes the surface of the earth visual and palpable perceptible: the morphology of the sea floor as well as the formation of mountain chains. With a relief globe you can grasp the earth!

relief of the Himalayas

The difference in height - between the Himalayas and the Mariana Trench 4 cm – is demonstrated with the help of colours: green for plains and varying shades of brown for heights.

gimbal system

Is it possible to turn the globe in order to take even a look at Antarctica easily?

A gimbal system allows for a rotation over two axes and, therefore, a 360-degree view on the globe.

interior decoration with relief globe

Is it possible, that a globe comprehends a world map of 4m² size?

The relief globe has a diameter of 64 cm – this measures up to a map of 2 x 2 meters.
