Here you can read more about the viewings that are current and can be offered in the planetarium.

The planetarium holds shows on the days that Vattenhallen is open to the public. To see a show, you need to buy an entrance ticket to Vattenhallen and a ticket to the show you are interested in. We have no age limit in the planetarium. We recommend that parents assess whether their children are mature enough to sit in the dark and watch the stars during a viewing, that lasts about 40 minutes. All our visitors, regardless of age, need to buy a ticket for a show, as the planetarium takes a limited number of visitors / tour.

During a viewing, we want to preserve the night vision of our visitors. We therefore ask our visitors, to turn off mobile phones and leave any flashing shoes (or similar) outside.

Other languages

We welcome international guests. 

If you are interested in a show in English or some other language, we encourage you to contact our reception to make a request.
Phone: +46 46 222 43 51

Given a small forewarning we can usually add a show in English to the weekend schedule.
