In the Zeiss Planetarium in the Silver Town of Schwaz visitors can reach for the stars! Unlike in astronomical observatories visitors do not watch the stars through a telescope, but the glimmering stars are artificially projected into the planetarium. Optic precision devices of the global technology company Zeiss as well as a 360 degree video equipment with sound system and effect projectors transform the cupola of the planetarium into space.
The planetarium offers shows on various topics, for instance black holes, the origins of life, astronautics as well as cosmic occurences like solar and lunar eclipses. In the cupola room the focus is set on providing information about the starry sky to children.
Furthermore there are starry fairy-tales (Sternenmärchen) for adults and children, organised on a reguar basis: characters like the Moon Bear, or Flappi, the bat, show and explain the starlit sky and the cosmos. A galactic event centre for the whole family!
