The Planetarium - Strasbourg
Located at the heart of the Astronomical Observatory, the Planetarium of the University of Strasbourg brings astronomy within everyone's reach thanks to its dome screen, which simulates the night sky full of stars. The Planetarium also offers guided tours of the Astronomical Observatory of Strasbourg's Great Dome, containing the famous Great Refractor telescope, built in 1880. The Planetarium shows and the guided tour of the Great Dome are only offered in French (no audio guides).
