The countdown is on. The new HALLE PLANETARIUM is approaching lift-off. A significant milestone was reached with the topping-out ceremony in autumn of 2020. In a few months, the construction work is expected to be completed and the stars above Halle (Saale) will once again be within reach.

Enclosed within the walls of the historic gasometer on Saline Island, the HALLE PLANETARIUM is not far from the city centre and within easy reach for future visitors from near and far.

A space is being created here where experienced-packed knowledge transfer and astronomy education can occur, a place for culture and encounters.

Equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, the large Star Room will seat over 100 visiting astronauts. It will become a space cruiser for young and old on their spectacular journeys through distant galaxies. The seminar room and auditorium will transform into flying classrooms. The roof terrace will have its own observatory, where cosmic sights and insights can be experienced in real time. The HALLE PLANETARIUM will also stage all kinds of cultural events and be a “special place” to celebrate children’s birthday parties, weddings and much more.
