• Cable cycling

    On the ceiling of the main performance area, moving at a height of about 6.5 meters
    the cable car is a perennial favorite of Heureka visitors. Cable bike has been
    In Heureka since 1993. The bike stays upright on the cable
    Thanks to the 120 kg counterweight. Due to the weight, it is difficult to drive
    despite the swaying, completely safe.


    A cable bike is a rare bicycle because it stays on
    upright even when stationary. Safety net under the cable wheel
    enables driving without a safety harness and the presence of a guide.
    There is also a denser net under the safety net, which is installed in drips
    in case of goods.

    The minimum length limit for a cable bike is 140 centimeters, so that the rider's feet can reach the pedals. The rider's maximum weight limit is 110 kilograms.

  • Focalt's pendulum

    The earth is spinning - and Heureka with it. The metal strips move in front of the pendulum according to the rotation of the earth.

    In which direction does the earth rotate?

    The pendulum is freely suspended. It is attached to the roof with a ball joint, so it keeps the same swing direction, even if the house rotates with the Earth.


    Notice the difference

    If there was a hinge at the top end of the pendulum, the pendulum would rotate with the house.
