Bochum




Wolfsburg


Jena


Flensburg (at the Marineschool Mürwik)


Strange one in Berlin ;)



Even the provincial towns has some kinda big planetariums :lol:

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 ;)

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.
