Those who want to shape the future and to understand the present, should know the past.

The TECHNOSEUM is one of Germany’s leading museums of technology. Our permanent exhibition showcases 200 years of technological and social history, combining in-depth information with hands-on experiences. Visitors enter a space-time spiral that takes them through the history of industrialization from the 18th century to our present day. At eight stations technicians bring the past to life and demonstrate the working conditions faced by workers in previous centuries. Moreover, our hands-on stations make it possible to gain formative interactive experiences with all types of technology, from mechanics and electrical engineering all the way to robotics.

The MLP Group – The partner for all financial matters
The MLP Group (MLP) is the partner for all financial matters – for private clients, companies and institutional investors. With our five brands, each of which enjoys a leading position in their respective markets, we offer a broad range of services.
The views and expectations of our clients always represent the starting point in each of these fields. Building on this, we then present our clients with suitable options in a comprehensible way so that they can make the right financial decisions themselves. For the implementation, we examine the offers of all relevant product providers in the market.
After being founded in 1971, MLP initially focused on the private client business. Securing a profound understanding of our clients represents an important part of this philosophy. Each of our more than 2,000 client consultants therefore focuses on one professional group, concentrating primarily on physicians, economists, engineers and lawyers. We support them in all financial matters – from old-age provision and wealth management, to health and non-life insurance, right through to financing, real estate brokerage and banking issues.
