Some Planetariums from Germany:


Hamburg


Berlin


Bochum




Wolfsburg


Jena


Flensburg (at the Marineschool Mürwik)


Strange one in Berlin



Even the provincial towns has some kinda big planetariums

Recklinghausen


Radebeul



And, how could it also be different, the schools doesn't go out empty, too!

School Planetarium in Bautzen, Saxony



And that's how the projectors inside mostly look alike:





Hope u enjoyed that little excursion

Btw: Someone who have upsetting impressions of a lightshow inside these buildings? I think that would be interesting... And I've never visited such an ... amazing... place

The McLaughlin Planetarium in Toronto is attached to the Royal Ontario Museum, which recently added a huge expansion. The Planetarium, however, is closed, due to underfunding.
