Hydroecological analysis of a pond

In small teams we will examine animals and plants which we find in the waters of Maxipark. The chemical and physical parameters and also the structure of the water analysis, will be main part of our investigation. A discussion and documentation of our results inside of our team are the core parts.

Maximilian park - in former times and nowadays

We are going to stroll through the park and learn how it developed from an old mine complex to the landscaped park it is today. In doing so, we’ll shed light on the historical background of the site as well as on its current importance as an industrial monument and focus on the structural change in the region.
