Facts and figures
Planetarium Hamburg opened in 1930. It is situated in a historic water tower, which was built 1912-1917 and located right in the middle of Hamburg's citypark (Stadtpark) – an architectural landmark of the city.
At the center of its skytheater is the Zeiss planetarium projector "Universarium Mk.9", which projects a magnificient starry sky on a dome spanning 21 meters - independent of daytime or weather. With more than 300.000 visitors per annum, Planetarium Hamburg may be even the most successful stand-alone-planetarium worldwide.
