Explore time and space in Denmark’s premier planetarium, see exciting exhibitions, and immerse yourself in a visually striking experience in the dome theater. Free admission to the Planetarium with Copenhagen City Pass.
The Planetarium is located close to Copenhagen’s town hall square and central train station, but also serves as a gateway into galaxies far, far away. The planetarium is dedicated to perhaps the greatest mystery of them all: the exploration of space and the history of our universe.
And no matter what journey they chose to take into the Great Unknown, visitors should make sure to not miss out on the dome theater! On an enormous screen spanning 1000 m², the Tycho Brahe Planetarium takes you on an immersive journey to the farthest reaches of our universe with various movies showing several times a day. These movies cover such exciting and varied topics as the search for life in space, the history of Earth, and also the Voyage of Time, the first foray into documentary storytelling by the critically acclaimed director Terrence Malick. Headphones with English audio tracks are available even for movies narrated in Danish, and a ticket to the dome theater also includes admission to the various exhibitions. One film is included in the pass.
An experience for the whole family, the planetarium offers various exhibitions, shows, and displays where an adult audience can discover astronomy and space exploration in greater depth while also offering the younger visitors to take their first steps on their discovery journey. Who has not dreamed of building their own space rocket or learning about the universe from an astronaut? The planetarium even has a number of artefacts from space on display, among them one of the biggest moon stones in the world, brought back by the Apollo 17 mission in 1972 – you will literally be able to see the stuff that stars are made of! But the planetarium does not just look toward the night sky. The new exhibition, Made in Space, explores how the atoms that form your body were first created in deep space and what journey they went on to end up as part of you.
