  The sixth SILBERSALZ Science & Media Festival ended with a record yesterday. More than 30,000 guests of all ages from near and far attended over 80 events at the sixth edition of the festival under the motto: "I spy with my little eye...".

This year, the empty department stores' on the market square became the festival centre and a central melting pot for all age groups, who experienced the four floors in a completely new way with exhibitions, performances, concerts, films, talks and events. In addition, there were events at twelve other locations scattered across the city, including the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, the Moritzburg Art Museum, the Planetarium, the Make Science research ship and the Georg Friedrich Händel Hall.
