  • Very nice film very well presented. We got a discount because we also visited the Zeiss optisches Museum  more »
  • I took my children to the 8pm program Space Symphony program. I knew it was to music, which is why we went, since we do not speak or understand German I figured it was 'safe' and would be entertaining...  more »

  • Toll!
  • Great place to have a wedding apparently.
  • Despite of the age, to enjoy a beautiful location to a quiet and impressive hour. Highly recommend the animation films are accompanied with music. The starry sky here occurs in the background and the animation inspire spirit and soul.

  • The presentations are informative and not too expensive. Modern planetarium, super image technology and sound. An impressive experience.

  • On Easter Monday we visited the Planetarium (once again) with our 4 children. We opted for a self-production of the oldest Planetarium in the world. That it is technically highly equipped, was reflected in the implementation of the fairy tale. Because in addition to the fictions of the stars panoramic projections of animated cartoon-like staging of fairy tale appears very neat round canvas of the dome. In particular the Bewegteffekte of stylized animations were child-friendly and yet effective. The presentation Manager was friendly and talented, to encourage the children to take part in the interactive elements of the fairy tale. The event itself is recommended in any case. The children have also pleased with a surprise after the presentation. The review would focus on the event itself, 5 star would be adequate. Criticism deserved my opinion but the Organization of the House: tickets reservation is possible but without seating, the purchase of tickets takes place in the narrow range of the Souvenierlädchens, which is located at the end of the waiting hall filled with visitors, sometimes closely. No visitor understands that can also often open (old main) cash no cards sell at the (old) main entrance, but only information. The visitor must huddle so prior to the event by the waiting and do at the box office, on which the House actually wants to sell souvenirs. All are annoyed. In the atmosphere sold little. After the presentation, if the visitor would perhaps interest for souvenirs, he is routed through the old main entrance (at the box office not to ticket sales) from the Planetarium. So now he missed Café, the restaurant and the souvenir shop of the House, for which he is not really has interested in on the way. Exactly opposite to the flow of visitors, would be much cheaper for the House and the visitors. To the visitor or customer convenience of the structure of two things: the family card you are limited to 3 children, paid from the 4th child back the price without a family card. Why? The events seem very closely timed: right at the beginning of the Abspannes all visitors were asked to leave the screening room, because already the next guests would... wait quickly And as said one was now in hectic atmosphere directly out of the House, rather than at the other offerings of the Planetarium over... What I almost forgot: amusing, like the fairy tale was durchGENDERt: Besides a Swineherd and a Baker a blacksmith and a Hunter were the heroines of the fairy tale :-) I hope ;-), there at least EU funding for these details of the production
