We attended the Queen Heaven show. For 1½ hours we laid back in our chairs and watched the most amazing 3D, 360 show with surround sound. It was introduced by Brian May. Queen music with clips from their concerts and videos intermingled with star shows. Incredible experience. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
We got there about half hour before the show started. Ther eis not a great deal to look round but a couple of things of interest.

It was a Queen tribute show so no language barrier for us as no translation needed.
Amazing music accompanied by the great new technology light/laser /sky show.
If you are a Freddie Mercury fan- it is so worth to visit this place.
Show lasted for 1.5 hr and it is designed for all ages. Comfortable seats make your experience even better.

The planetarium makes use of the best new technology to explain the wonders of the universe. It’s not just a star show. So much more. We stayed for 3 shows. There is no real exhibition to see at the planetarium. You just go for the shows.

A nice planetarium, with varying programs, best enjoyed with kids. My favorite event, however, is Yuri's night, typically celebrated on the Sunday after April 12, the anniversary of the first manned space flight in history (named after Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space). That features a number exhibits related to Gagarin and to space flight, as well as activities for kids and adults both. And afterwards, if the weather is good, go for a walk in the park or head to the nearby beer garden.

It was right across the street from my hotel - so "why not?" Though I'm usually far more keen on educational material than entertainment, it was a Friday evening and thought it would be just good to relax.

"Lichtmond" looks and sounds like it was made by a semi-professional, middle-aged, middle-of-the-road team of self-congratulating amateurs with bland, creativity-free snoozers. And at the end of the 1 hour of boring music made with the least variety and creativity possible, and graphics that seemed to come out of the sample store of a mid-1990's renderer with no professional recomposting, the flat, textureless ending featured credits and a photo of team of four who created this snooze-fest. The team of four all belong to the same family.

It's everything that's flat and boring about mediocre Euro technic music and esthetic, cast upwards onto a gloriously over-qualified dome screen and video apparatus. So sad to see such mediocre fare on such a beautiful and worthy venue.

I kept my eyes open, in the hopes that something with the slightest texture would be produced. I was disappointed. Many people left in the middle.

Go to the educational and scientific events. Skip "Lichtmond."

If this is your kind of thing, you'll be fine without the translation headset. There's nothing worth understanding, and one of the songs is in English. I was a disappointed to understand the boring lyrics.

Up your game, Zeiss! 8-) . Even license something. I'm sure interesting artists would love to use your canvas!

Even if you don't understand German, please go. They have audio guides for all their shows. Plus, the audio guides are free. You have to pay a refundable deposit when you get them at the counter & you get your cash back when you return them.

They have multiple different shows per day. Although they say the show is 1hr it's actually about 50mins. There are a few more things to see & read inside the building. Try to reserve tickets for a show beforehand.

The planetarium is standing alone in the middle of a massive mess of a construction site, where nobody is working, but the planetarium has done well to give access to its guests. Access with cars is not possible.

We were looking forward to visit Planetarium of Stuttgart and enjoy an astronomy show in english (as we had read in the site). Instead of that they gave us a pair of uncomfortable headphones. We couldn't watch the show, because the the German narrator was speaking very loudly. We left the hall with a terrible headache.

There are major, major construction works surrounding this planetarium. It looks so small from the outside that I walked away.

We walked from the main train station to the Planetarium. There was not a show. There was a small room with about 10 displays - all in German. There was a heat senor. It was fun to raise my sweaty shirt to see how hot my arm pits were. Then hold up my cell phone on and then off which made it red to green. The bathrooms were nice. There is a great deal of construction around the planetarium (the cranes and construction was so fascinating on its own). There were very friendly man in uniforms. They did not speak English. We went on a Sunday afternoon on a whim. Maybe our experience would be better if there had been a show. It was free. That was good. There was a really awesome globe. There were 2 vending machines as well.

Carl Zeiss is known throughout the world for the lenses. The Planetarium is easily accessible through public transport .Get down at Neckartor or walk from Schloss platz. The entry fee is 8 Euros and there are shows called Cosmic Collision, Stars and Laser show. There are periodic special lectures and shows too .The seating area is good with great acoustics and technology is good. The explanation is in German and English shows/ headphones can be checked on availability. The adjoining Neckartor park is beautiful and kids could spend some time
