Many plans and ideas for the Halle Planetarium’s programme are already circling in orbit. New ideas are constantly being identified and charted, gradually forming a packed calendar of events that will irresistibly pull visitors in. “Fascinating!” as Spock would say. And there is no better way to describe it.
Until the Halle Planetarium opens in the fourth quarter of 2021, digital recordings of some episodes of the popular “Hallesche Sternstunden” series as well as the topping-out ceremony held on 27 October 2020 can be found here on this website.
The calendar of events is continuously being updated. So stay tuned and check in from time to time! Perhaps a new programme item will have materialised by then.

Picnic under the stars with a lecture on shooting stars and a view of the moon through a telescope
Once again this year, the Stadtmuseum Halle (Saale) is organising a "Picnic under the Stars" at the Oberburg during the shooting star season, every evening between 9 and 12 August from 7 p.m. to midnight. On 12 August at 9 pm, the Sternfreunde of the Gesellschaft für astronomische Bildung e.V. (Society for Astronomical Education) will present interesting facts about shooting stars. In addition, employees of the Halle Planetarium will point a large telescope at the moon and show craters and lunar mountains under clear skies.
Starry and sparkling beauty: the nights around winter solstice
On the occasion of the winter solstice on 21 December 2021, the Halle (Saale) Planetarium will welcome the Halle (Saale) State Museum of Prehistory. After an evening guided tour through the special exhibition of the State Museum, we will go on a joint astronomy excursion to the Planetarium at the Holzplatz. Under the dome of the Star Room, planetarium director Dirk Schlesier will inspire the audience with the phenomena and special features of the night stars around the winter solstice. This will be followed by the ascent to the observation terrace, from where visitors can take a direct look into the depths of the ether. And all this while enjoying warm drinks and feastings in Bronze Age style.
