I must say i was quite disappointed when the show was over.. i have visited around 4 planetariums in my life, and that was by far the worst.. I've heard it is one of the oldest though, that's why I've given 3 stars. Other than that.. while the show was running,a small part of the screen was not working and... More

Been there one evening. We found out the show was not at all about astronomy but just really loud music with animated pictures. Really disappointing and could not really leave the room.. There was a few pictures of space but of poor quality, very quick and not using the Weiss optics. Better to go to the cinema for this. Astronomical... More

Not only the shows are super realistic, teaching and breathtaking but also you can see live some planets due to cameras mounted on satellites. It is an incredible experience!!!

Now reopen, and also now with an English audio guide (free but need to pay a 20 euro deposit until you return them). The show was really excellent quality and the place looks really nicely refurbished - with comfy reclining seats. It's also cheap at 8 euro per adult. Highly recommended!

I have been there on January 3th. It was closed, Works in progress everywhere around the planetarium. It could happen but I was disappointed 'cause I strongly wanted to visit it and nowhere i found informations about its closure; neither in the info centre, where I asked about it. On the Planetarium entrance there was just a small notice, only... More

I absolutely love this place. It´s my favorite planetarium so far. I went with a big group of friends, and the "show" we saw was awesome, it was very well structured and quite interesting. The chairs move and you get to see everything on the celling, I remember being very happy while the guide was explaining things to us.

Lovely place, I didn't understand barely a word that was said but still anyone with basic astrology will be alright.

A nice break from the heat/cold or just waiting for the afternoon train. English is only at certain times but really you can enjoy any of the presentation and can get the gist of things easily. There some small exhibits you can see while waiting for the presentation to start. The planetarium is located just a short distance from the... More

Great English speaking programs monthly and many catered to young students, as the Planetarium Professor, makes the stars and night so exciting.
