The former Foreign Minister Westerwelle has honored COLUMBUS as one of the most beautiful manufactures in Germany.
COLUMBUS was the first manufacturer to create an interface between "analog" globes and digital content. This is done with an audio-video pen, the COLUMBUS Explorer Pen, and through the Globe App.
Werner "Tiki" Küstenmacher ("Simplify your life" ) wrote the accompanying book to the COLUMBUS illuminated globe THE MOON.
The publishing houses KOSMOS and COLUMBUS entered into a joint partnership in 2017. As a result, all KOSMOS globes, whether for children or adults, are now produced exclusively in Germany at COLUMBUS.
COLUMBUS Verlag was visited by former German Chancellor Angela Merkel as part of a tour of medium-sized businesses and on the occasion of the publishing house's 100th anniversary.
The COLUMBUS illuminated globe PLANET EARTH was awarded the internationally renowned 'Silver Award' by 'world didac', the foundation for the promotion and development of didactic and pedagogic teaching aids.
COLUMBUS illuminated globes are still manufactured exclusively in Germany.
COLUMBUS manufactures the largest series-produced globes (Magnum Globes) with diameters of 65 cm, 77 cm, 100 cm, and an incredible 200 cm.
COLUMBUS presented the first mass-produced globe with a free-floating sphere in 2000. However, these models are no longer included in the current range of globes.
The head of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY's map service, Mr. Kevin Allen, said about the globes produced by COLUMBUS: "The best globes we've ever had!"
