Overview

The Sky disc discovered in 1999 near Nebra is the world's oldest concrete depiction of the cosmos. 3600 years ago, this bronze disc made it possible to determine calendar dates and link the solar and lunar calendars to each other. You can learn about the Sky Disc's astronomy in the planetarium of the Nebra Ark at the foot of Mittelberg hill. The visitor's centre reveals further dimensions of this famous discovery in a multimedia presentation of the Sky Disc's history. The original discovery spot is also revealed and explained to visitors.

Very interesting story on the sky-disc, an ancient find from the past (>4000 years ago) that neatly describes the lunar and sun calander. Museum is modern, well facilitated and also very suitable for childeren with animations and things to do.

Okay, it's near the place the disc was found, and a bus ride (or long hike) away. The original lies in Halle, and the visitors are presented with replicas and some history in a relatively modern format. As a museum it's certainly a bit of...More

Far away from anything interesting, but worthy the visit. For the fans of history a must. Very intersting architecture, great nature around, especially in summer and very innovative. Simply beautiful.
