Vienna Planetarium

Watch the Universe Truly Come Alive

For a uniquely impressive and educational experience, be sure to visit the Vienna Planetarium (Vienna Zeiss Planetarium). This extraterrestrial and interstellar experience is located on the edge of the Prater Amusement Park behind the Giant Ferris Wheel (Riesenrad).

Whereas the Würstelprater is more known as an amusement area, filled with spook rides and roller coasters, there is a reason the Planetarium is located here. The Würstelprater used to search for innovative and technically advanced attractions. When the Planetarium was built, Vienna was the first city outside of Germany with one.

At the Planetarium, you will find the most modern star projector in the world, depicting the starry sky as almost life-like in the various "astro shows". You will also be able to see stars, star clusters, galaxies, and nebulas in their natural colors. These create a gorgeous effect, often glittering in a magical and mysterious way. You can take a look at more than 9,000 of these curious objects of the sky. Many of them are not visible to the naked eye, yet at the Planetarium there is a unique laser image projector. This very special projector offers additional astronomical pictures, films, and computer animation in vivid colors. Watch as the vast and fascinating universe truly comes alive!

Shows at the Planetarium are usually at 9.30am, 10am, 11am, 3pm, 6pm, or 7pm. Whereas the shows change on a regular basis, they usually focus on how the Earth fits into the cosmological scheme of things. Please note, the shows are only available in German.
