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.

We went there mainly for the lightshow (with contemporary music); our ticket included access to the permanent exhibition. I would definitely recommend anyone going to purchase tickets for events (and not just for the permanent exhibition and presentations), I think it's more worth it, as the Planetarium is very small and does not have a lot of items on display. The ones that are there are very interesting nonetheless! The lightshow was fun to watch, especially as it was coordinated with music - some of it was of good quality, others not so much and not so interesting. I think overall it was a fun 45 minutes, and I'm glad I tried this experience - I'm definitely glad Stuttgart has something like this, which is interesting to learn a bit about space and our universe. I'm not sure I'd go again (maybe I would visit the observatories), but if you have a few hours to spare around downtown, then it's fun to visit (just don't have too high expectations!).

The planetarium makes use of the best new technology to explain the wonders of the universe. It’s not just a star show. So much more. We stayed for 3 shows. There is no real exhibition to see at the planetarium. You just go for the shows.

A nice planetarium, with varying programs, best enjoyed with kids. My favorite event, however, is Yuri's night, typically celebrated on the Sunday after April 12, the anniversary of the first manned space flight in history (named after Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space). That features a number exhibits related to Gagarin and to space flight, as well as activities for kids and adults both. And afterwards, if the weather is good, go for a walk in the park or head to the nearby beer garden.

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!
