Planetarium and Sternwarte Observatory

Fascinatingly close to the stars above – in Bavaria's largest planetarium. While sitting in comfortable seats in an air-conditioned 18-meter diameter domed hall you can not only watch a faithful reproduction of the starlit sky displayed by the most modern fulldome video projection equipment.

Nicolaus-Copernicus-Planetarium

You can also observe the planets and moons in the solar system close up. And voyages to the depths of the universe are equally possible. The wide-ranging program of astronomy shows, science lectures and cultural history is geared to all age groups. 

Sternwarte Observatory

For over 70 years the observatory stood at the Rechenberg. It has various equipment for bringing the starlit sky down to the level of the visitors. With the aid of models, films and computer simulations, astronomical and physical processes in the universe are explained.
