100 years of ZEISS Planetariums

In 1923, ZEISS presented the world's first projection planetarium developed for the Deutsches Museum in Munich. The first public demonstration and hence the birth of the modern planetarium took place on this occasion.

ZEISS technology has equipped 700 of them in the last 100 years. Today, as modern high-tech domes, star theaters offer fascinating fulldome shows and are still a crowd puller after 100 years.
