On November 8th, 1895, Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered a new kind of ray, which he
called X-rays. A small laboratory located in the former Physical Institute of the University of Würzburg, now the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg, was the sight of one of the most important scientific breakthroughs in medical history.
The “Röntgenkuratorium Würzburg e.V.” was founded on December 3rd 1981, as a registered association to honor the memory of Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen.
The nonprofit organization designed, maintains and manages the Röntgen memorial located at the site where Röntgen first discovered X-rays, the former Institute of Physics at the University of Würzburg on Röntgenring 8.
Please explore the Memorial and consider making a single or sustaining membership donation to help preserve this historically important site.
