The stellar theatre, opened in 1987, was one of the last signature projects of the former GDR government. Its silver dome is 30 meters in outer diameter, which makes the Zeiss-Großplanetarium one of the largest planetariums in Germany.

Programme at the Zeiss-Großplanetarium

The programme merges scientific findings, entertainment and artistic elements including music, artwork and theatre into a unique, emotional experience. Computer animations illustrate the birth and death of stars, three-dimensional flights over planetary surfaces and the collision of entire galaxies. After comprehensive restoration and modernization, the Zeiss-Großplanetarium reopened in August 2016 as a state-of-the-art stellar theatre.
