Facts around the Academy


The Academy celebrated its opening

The idea for the construction of the academy was born as early as 1994 through initial planning drafts by our company founder Erich Sennebogen sen. It was ceremonially opened in 2014.


total area

The SENNEBOGEN Academy covers a total area of almost 25,000 m², including the outdoor demonstration facilities and the training halls.


outdoor demonstration area

The nearby demonstration area also offers sufficient space for our large machines - so we can optimally combine theory and practice in our training courses.

Our training and seminar rooms can be flexibly arranged and booked for up to 60 people. Ask us about your individual possibilities!


events and trainings take place per year

From technical trainings and operator licenses to internal employee trainings and concerts: over 200 events and training courses take place annually at the SENNEBOGEN Academy.


satisfied participants

Since the opening of the SENNEBOGEN Academy, over 6000 satisfied participants have already been successfully trained in our various training courses.


countries our guests come from

historical SENNEBOGEN machines

Under the roof of the pyramid, there are 9 historical and still fully functional SENNEBOGEN machines that illustrate the development of construction machinery.


MWh per year is produced by our photovoltaic system - more than we consume

When selecting the building materials and with consideration of the energy supply, sustainability was a key focus: through our photovoltaic system we produce 80 MWh of electricity per year, which is more than we consume! The entire system is heated by solar power and an environmentally friendly heat pump.
