We attended the Queen Heaven show. For 1½ hours we laid back in our chairs and watched the most amazing 3D, 360 show with surround sound. It was introduced by Brian May. Queen music with clips from their concerts and videos intermingled with star shows. Incredible experience. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
We got there about half hour before the show started. Ther eis not a great deal to look round but a couple of things of interest.

It was a Queen tribute show so no language barrier for us as no translation needed.
Amazing music accompanied by the great new technology light/laser /sky show.
If you are a Freddie Mercury fan- it is so worth to visit this place.
Show lasted for 1.5 hr and it is designed for all ages. Comfortable seats make your experience even better.

It was right across the street from my hotel - so "why not?" Though I'm usually far more keen on educational material than entertainment, it was a Friday evening and thought it would be just good to relax.

"Lichtmond" looks and sounds like it was made by a semi-professional, middle-aged, middle-of-the-road team of self-congratulating amateurs with bland, creativity-free snoozers. And at the end of the 1 hour of boring music made with the least variety and creativity possible, and graphics that seemed to come out of the sample store of a mid-1990's renderer with no professional recomposting, the flat, textureless ending featured credits and a photo of team of four who created this snooze-fest. The team of four all belong to the same family.

It's everything that's flat and boring about mediocre Euro technic music and esthetic, cast upwards onto a gloriously over-qualified dome screen and video apparatus. So sad to see such mediocre fare on such a beautiful and worthy venue.

I kept my eyes open, in the hopes that something with the slightest texture would be produced. I was disappointed. Many people left in the middle.

Go to the educational and scientific events. Skip "Lichtmond."

If this is your kind of thing, you'll be fine without the translation headset. There's nothing worth understanding, and one of the songs is in English. I was a disappointed to understand the boring lyrics.

Up your game, Zeiss! 8-) . Even license something. I'm sure interesting artists would love to use your canvas!

Just wanted to warn anyone thinking of visiting that contrary to what the reviewer 2 reviews down said, there is no English show. Because of that review, I wasted time and money spent on parking. Should have figured out from the lack of English on the website.

The lack of an English show indicates that this is not an attraction for international tourists.

Also from what I could see of the outside it is not very big, compared to the planetarium in Chicago, IL or even in Singapore. Also, parking is scarce. Give it a miss.

We found out about this planetarium on the Internet when we first moved here. Everything was in English and showed times for viewing shows in English, but when we got all the way down there, they turned us away, saying they don't speak English and don't have English shows! Odd, because my daughter's class went on a field trip that year and they had everything in English. If it was just the customer service that day, then THAT is what was poor.

The show was for a low price of 5€/students and it was absolutely worth it. Not only was the show realised by excellent instruments, the story told is fascinating, informative and fun too!
Highly recommendable!

I have been there on January 3th. It was closed, Works in progress everywhere around the planetarium. It could happen but I was disappointed 'cause I strongly wanted to visit it and nowhere i found informations about its closure; neither in the info centre, where I asked about it.
On the Planetarium entrance there was just a small notice, only in German. I expected better from such a turistic place.

Lovely place, I didn't understand barely a word that was said but still anyone with basic astrology will be alright.

A nice break from the heat/cold or just waiting for the afternoon train. English is only at certain times but really you can enjoy any of the presentation and can get the gist of things easily. There some small exhibits you can see while waiting for the presentation to start.

The planetarium is located just a short distance from the train station.

I had high expectations but the show ended up being a bit dull and boring. There was way too much explanation for each frame, leaving someone who doesn't understand German with only one option. Wait for the show to be over!
