As a couple that speaks no German whatsoever, we looked for the next English show, which was only 9 euros each. Really comfortable and awe inspiring atmosphere, definitely something good to do in Mannheim

Defintly worth a visit. The kids went there with their Kindergarten group and later with their school class, so I decided I want to go there too. I did not regret it :-)

What can you expect from a Planetarium ? Only if you are interested in astronomy, that's the place to go. Don't get me wrong.I have a lot of respect to all technic lovers. By the way next door is the technical museum.
