The Planetarium

  • The Planetarium

    Located at the heart of the Astronomical Observatory, the Planetarium at the Jardin des Sciences of the University of Strasbourg brings astronomy within everyone's reach, thanks to its dome screen, which simulates the night sky full of stars.

    The staff of the Jardin des Sciences also offer a tour of the Astronomical Observatory, during which you can discover the buildings and instruments and the magnificent Coronelli globe, which has been renovated.

    The Planetarium shows and the guided tour of the Astronomical Observatory are only offered in French (no audio guides).

    A journey through the world of stars. At the Planetarium, stars and nebulae are projected onto a hemispherical domed ceiling. The theater seats 65 people. The audio-visual equipment and a versatile technical device make it possible to show the sky at any period, from ancient times to the present day, seen from anywhere in the world. This device can also explain phenomena in astronomy as well as the complex star system seen through Astrophysics. Interactive experiments and temporary exhibitions are presented in the “crypt of the stars”. Skywatching at night can be done in the large domed observatory.
