The body as a place of happiness

Great love, a carefree life, true friendship ... we all strive for happiness.

But have you ever wondered how happiness comes about? Why it is so important for our lives and why can't we get enough of it? Or why we can't retain happiness permanently?

As with every action, perception, or sensation, the feeling of happiness is also a result of certain processes in our body. In the Heidelberg BODY WORLDS Museum, you can use real anatomical specimens to discover what exactly is under your skin and which structures are involved in the development of the feeling of happiness. In the process, you will learn many interesting facts about your organ functions and all about health. And you will be surprised how many different ways positive or negative emotions affect the entire body. Because everything we experience, feel, and do or don't do with our body sooner or later affects it.

An exhibition that will change the way you look at yourself.
Here you can find the ticketshop.
