Lübeck Observatory (»Sternwarte Lübeck«)
Your host – Conference Opening on Friday mid-day
The Hamburg Planetarium in the Hamburg City Park offers unique audiovisual impressions and explanations of the fascinating connections between our earth and the cosmos. For more than 90 years, the star theater has allowed young and old visitors to experience the stars and planets literally “within reach” and immerse themselves in cosmic spaces of light and sound. Every visit to the Hamburg Planetarium becomes an impressive 360 ° experience for the senses.
The Hamburg Planetarium, with its unique technical possibilities and wide-ranging program, is a meeting place for the public with culture and science that has been noticed far beyond the borders of Germany. The earth and its place in the cosmos are at the center of the extensive program. In addition, visitors to the planetarium experience music, light, literature and laser worlds up close and with technical brilliance.
