The Hamburg Planetarium attracts more than 300,000 visitors per year.

The Hamburg Planetarium has been built into a water tower, which not only captivates by its architecture. The structure has a look-out platform, providing a panoramic view of the city and, in clear nights, of the natural stars.

In October 2003 the Planetarium reopened after an extensive reconstruction. Totally new planetarium technology was installed: the UNIVERSARIUM Mark IX together with a ZULIP laser image projector from Carl Zeiss, supplemented by a digital fulldome projection system.
