Zeiss Plan­et­ari­um in Bo­chum


Stars, galax­ies and plan­ets shine un­der the domed roof

Fas­cin­at­ing as­tro­nomy shows take the vis­it­ors’ breath away. Thou­sands of stars rush by. You can ex­plore space for your­self at the Bo­chum Plan­et­ari­um, without any as­tro­naut train­ing, a rock­et or space­suit. State-of-the-art tech­no­logy al­lows any­one to take a trip to out­er space.

The view of the clear sky is breath-taking. The Big Dipper sparkles over the heads of the stargazers. At the edge of the dome, a giant asteroid soars by; a space station can be seen there too. One of the most modern projection systems in the world shows distant stars and planets. They shine brightly in the artificial darkness of the Bochum Planetarium.

260 seats offer space for extended journeys to the stars. The Universarium IX projector simulates flights into outer space from any place on earth. Not even time plays a role in the starting point of the flight. The expedition begins when the new space pilot is ready.

Cosmic links can be clearly explained on exploratory tours through space. An expert reports on the Milky Way, heavenly bodies, far away galaxies and stars. Science meets entertainment. The drive to explore and the atmosphere of cinema are skilfully combined in the screening room. The approximately 600 square metre projection screen makes it possible. Bright days become dark nights in just a few seconds.

Events and lectures such as “From the Big Bang to Humans”, “The Wonders of the Cosmos” and “Black Holes” invite visitors under the large domed roof every day. Live tours of the universe, astronomy and music shows regularly await guests. The “Fantastic Universe” exhibition enchants with 50 large format images of wonders of the cosmos.
