Hi Andy, many thanks for your kind and positive feedback! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit at the visitor centre. If I understand aright, the staff at the cashpoint did not offer you our audioguides in English?? If so - this was very unfortunate and I would like to apologise! With the audioguide you can listen to translated texts and media, also the planetarium show. Though you managed to read in German - great job! - please excuse the inconvenience. I will remember the staff to be a little more thougtful with foreign-language guests. Best regards, Manuela
