Universe Science Park
It really is difficult not to be in a good mood as you experience Universe, which is located outside the town of Nordborg on the island of Als.
Judging by the enthusiasm exhibited by children and adults alike as they experience the various attractions, the popularity of the science park is beyond question.
Universe Science Park aims to inspire enthusiasm for science, technology and entrepreneurship amongst children and youngsters. The park thus has a wealth of fantastic adventures and attractions. Here you can attempt to lift a car, build your own water rocket, explore the virtual world or try any number of our many other activities.
Experience excitement and fun with the whole family in Sønderjylland’s biggest experience park. Learn about science and technology through play in a fascinating world. We promise you “eureka” moments and stomach-churning thrills.
At Universe in 2023, you can pit yourself against winds of hurricane force in "Beat the Storm", explore a virtual universe in which you can paraglide or design your own rollercoaster. Or you can race off on a Segway, see whether you have a fear of heights on Sky Trail, or else simply enjoy the peace and quiet in one of the beautiful gardens. There are lots of fun and educational activities that await you, ready to create plenty of great memories to take home with you.
Universe Science Park is the first attraction in Sønderjylland to be certified with the new Green Attraction environmental label. The label is aimed at attractions with a focus on sustainability, thus making it easier for guests to choose sustainable attractions. Universe has a greater focus on reducing its negative footprint and has implemented sustainable solutions at the park, such as sorting of waste and the use of reusable beakers. The park complies with criteria with respect to water, energy and foodstuffs, and has employed a Green Attraction coordinator to work with sustainable development and to implement green initiatives.
