Planetarium Hamburg*


The Hamburg Planetarium is one of the world's oldest, and one of Europe's most visited planetariums. It is located in a former water tower at the center of Hamburg Stadtpark. Planetarium Hamburg opened to the public on April 30, 1930. It is situated in anArt-Deco water tower, designed byOskar Menzel and built between 1912 and 1915. However, it was only used as such until 1924, and subsequently converted to a planetarium. At the opening of the planetarium in 1930, a Zeiss Universarium Mark II projector, already acquired by the City of Hamburg in 1925, became the planetarium's centerpiece. Subsequent Zeiss projectors were a Mark IV in 1957, a Mark VI in 1983 and a Universarium IX since 2006.
