Topological freezing is a well known problem in lattice simulations: with shrinking lattice spacing a transition between topological sectors becomes increasingly improbable, leading to a problematic increase of the autocorrelation time regarding several observables. We present our investigation of metadynamics as a solution for topological freezing in the Schwinger model. Specifically, we take a closer look at the collective variable and its scaling behaviour, visualize the effects of topological freezing and how metadynamics helps in that respect and explore alternatives for a more efficient building process. Possible implications for and differences to four-dimensional SU(3) theory are briefly discussed.
