Planetarium Mannheim, Mannheim

A "Universarium" with the use of fiber-optic cable designed by Carl Zeiss Jena makes the stars in Planetarium Mannheim performances seem real. The opening hours of the attraction depend on the performance schedule--which means the structure is only opened one hour before the show and a half hour after. Shows take place daily from morning until late afternoon, so plan your visit accordingly. The varying schedule for the performances is on the attraction's website. Take advantage of the extra hour before the show to explore the pyramid-shaped building and check out the exhibits revealing the wonders of space.

  • Somewhat hidden and decentralized the Planetarium is located in Mannheim, Germany. Both parking and the tram stop you must be running something else (5-8 min is but to create). The building exudes the charm of the 80s and certainly no longer is up to date. That however does not really matter, is much more exciting, you get it as a visitor. The selection of events is very large, and goes far beyond the normal star looking"beyond. So there are also several music shows (!) Far in advance sold out!) and children's shows. In the domed Hall mn in comfortable and pivoting deck chairs sits, so almost the entire 360' can see. When selecting the event, you should read the description of the content however before because it goes partially already quite deep in the detail and thus for lay people could be boring, too. All in all a super facility in the man himself can grope n slowly the phenomena of outer space or even has the ability, his knowledge refresh. A point deduction there then on the decoration of the House. A wardrobe that is not very trustworthy, and unfortunately very little lockers, this should be changed quickly. However, is well worth a visit in any case. I personally found the way into the Planetarium after 6 years, not the last time there however I was guaranteed.

  • Really bad idea on the subject of black holes which was introduction, which was shown with the star projector, although visually quite beautiful, has supplied but no relevant information or worked on the subject of black holes. The actual idea was shown only with normal projectors, the animation has been very out of date. Instead to explain black holes and their emergence, these have been described only, often with the remark "that's all been proven". I was not really smart from the idea, that I've seen animations of the Earth as from my childhood. There I would prefer some background information. Unfortunately, my expectations for the Planetarium were not met, I can not recommend this idea.
