The Metrology Mile shows the history and presence of metrology in Goettingen in its diversity. It stresses the close connection with research and training facilities and illustrates the remarkable infrastructure of natural sciences and technology in the city which have been growing here over the last 200 years.
In an atmosphere of intellectual open-mindedness and creativity a large number of unusual metrology companies have established themselves. The rich diversity of cultural life in Goettingen has surely contributed to the development. From this perspective, the remarkable number of noble laureates from Goettingen is also easily conceivable.
