About this show

Join us on a journey through our Milky Way! Together we will fly to places where no human being has ever been before. We start at our sun, look at our galaxy from the outside and plunge into its starry centre. Along the way, we will address exciting questions: How does a galaxy form and function? And where do all the stars come from?
In cooperation with the University of Heidelberg and the international StarForge research group, current scientific data and simulations have been implemented for the planetarium. This makes it possible to experience our Milky Way in unprecedented details!
