Owner description: Planetarium Hamburg is one of the landmarks of Hamburg.Located in a historic water tower in the Stadtpark (city park), it features a unique combination of sophisticated technology. It is the world's first star theater to blend an immersive 3D image with 3D sound into a 360-degree overall experience. The Zeiss star projection, a digital 8K 3D full-dome projection, the 3D sound system and one of the world's largest showlaser- and lighting systems form the outstanding instrument for traveling with this "cruise ship of the senses". Planetarium Hamburg offers a wide range of presentations for children, families and adults - to learn, to discover, to take off, to relax and unwind - and dream. From the observation deck at a height of 60 meters, which is accessible by an express lift, the building also offers a great panoramic view of Hamburg. In addition a selection of drinks and food welcomes guests at the in-house Cafe Nordstern (with indoor and outdoor areas) .

“Birds eye view of the city”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The planetarium is compact and crowns the verdant stadt park, but it's observation terrace offers a splendid birds' eye view of the city, including the port, in a single sweep. Definitely worth a short climb up.

“Pink Floyd at the Planetarium.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We went to see the Dark Side of the Moon show, and despite about four false starts due to technical problems it was still an enjoyable evening. The bar in the lobby was a nice and unexpected touch, we would have arrived earlier for a more leisurely drink if we had known! I'd recommend getting there before sun set to enjoy a little of Stadtpark.

“Not service minded”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We changed out mind - but not possible to return tickets for a show which was 2 hours later.

We decided to come back waiting in the lobby for the show they didn't announce it and closed the doors with no notice. Furious Germans had to fight with a non service minded crew.

Eventually they returned out money which they said they couldn't do in the first place.

Scam. At least scammy practice.

“Queen Show”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

My first visit to a planetarium and I loved it! Great show :) The only problem I found was that the seats at the back don't recline - meaning after and hour of looking up I had neck ache!

“Queen Show”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

Was very excited to see the Queen show but ended up rather disappointed as the laser show is not very modern. Enjoyed the show but won't see it again.
