Jubiläumswochenende im Zeiss-Großplanetarium: »100 Jahre Planetarium und weiter«

In the organizer's words:

As part of the 100th anniversary of the planetarium, which started on October 21, 2023, the Zeiss-Großplanetarium is exploring new immersive possibilities: From May 31 to June 02, the seats will be removed from the planetarium hall and Germany's most-visited planetarium will allow new perspectives in the 23-meter dome.

Experience this unique weekend with events for all ages and tastes:

"100 years of the planetarium and beyond"

On October 21, 1923, the first projection planetarium was presented to the public at the Deutsches Museum in Munich. The company Carl Zeiss Jena had developed the first star projector and the design of the self-supporting dome in the previous years. After further adjustments to the projector, the world's first planetarium in Munich went into regular operation on May 7, 1925. By 2025, the planetarium's centenary will be celebrated in the Zeiss-Großplanetarium with further highlights and special events.

While the classic projection planetarium enables the presentation of phenomena from the solar system, visitors can now travel into the cosmos independently of time and place with the help of digital video projection in 360° full domes. In addition to astronomical content, programs from related sciences as well as live concerts, music programs, radio plays and readings are also presented.
