Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Germany
U10: The Kronos-Projekt



U10: The Kronos-Projekt
GERMANY
BERLIN  •  Potsdamer Platz  •  Ongoing
 
 

The Kronos-Projekt, also known as the Steglitz Deceleration Train, is an experiment with time travel which began in 1926. A transformed Underground train coach with 8 passengers is moving extremely slowly on the Berlin Underground network. Believed to be somewhere north of Rathaus Steglitz station, the coach has advanced 317 meters in 83 years. For the time machine's passengers, that time span has felt like only 7 hours.

After the attempt in mid-November in Innsbrucker Platz station to reconstruct the Kronos-Machine as an animation and to contact the passengers acoustically, U10 nows presents a comprehensive documention and a 1:10 scale model of the Kronos-Machine on the U2 line platform in Potsdamer Platz station.
