Hohentübingen Castle

UNESCO World Heritage Site meets mobile mapping


Schloss Hohentuebingen Scan dotscene UNESCO Weltkulturerbe

Our team is on its way to a project that can be seen from afar, towering over the old town of Tübingen on the Schlossberg.

We are talking about Hohentübingen Castle - a place that is full of impressive testimonies to the history of mankind. After an initial inspection, the time has come. The dotcube is ready to go and so is our scan operator.

From the castle cellar to the inner courtyard and the towers, our team scans the entire castle inside and out. The entire castle grounds are captured in three dimensions.

New discoveries await at every turn, which our scan operators will remember. This is because the castle museum houses archaeological and cultural science collections from the University of Tübingen covering a cultural history period of 40,000 years.

Protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017, the museum is home to Ice Age art finds and the pile dwellings, which were also added to the World Heritage List in 2011. So two UNESCO World Heritage Sites under one roof!

It is also home to the world's first biochemical laboratory, where Felix Hoppe-Seyler gave haemoglobin its name and Friedrich Miescher isolated nuclein for the first time.

When we look at the 3D laser point cloud of the project, we realize that our work lays the foundation for the preservation of a historic site for future generations.

A unique project commissioned by the Landesbetrieb Vermögen und Bau Baden-Württemberg, which once again impressively demonstrates how the preservation of historic buildings can be significantly facilitated by the use of innovative technology.
