Pocket Guide: Stuttgart-Mitte Carl Zeiss Planetarium Hotels

Hotels near the Carl Zeiss Planetarium

The Carl Zeiss Planetarium stands in the leafy surrounding of Stuttgart’s central Schlossgarten, a short stroll of the central Hauptbahnhof. Stuttgart’s hotels cluster around it, ranging from affordable mid-price to high-end accommodation. There is a wide choice of hotels, B&Bs and hostels to suit all pockets in central Stuttgart, from the Heilbronnerstraße running north, to the districts just south of the Schlossplatz.

The Carl Zeiss Planetarium, Good to Know

Stuttgart’s first planetarium was built on the roof of the historic Hindenburgbau building in 1928, and destroyed by Allied bombing in 1943, but donations and support meant, in 1969, the Carl Zeiss Foundation could commission a new planetarium to be built in the Schlossgarten. Designed in the shape of a stepped pyramid by architect Wilfried Beck-Erlang, the new Carl Zeiss Planetarium opened its window to the universe for locals and visitors in 1977 with imagery generated, appropriately enough, by a Zeiss projector. The original projector was replaced in 2001, and in 2007 a laser system was installed, providing spectacular sound and light shows to supplement the cosmological programmes. Renovation and installation of new full-dome projection technology in 2016 sets the Carl Zeiss Planetarium up for the future. All shows are in simulcast in English using audio guides or the planetarium app.

Carl Zeiss (1816-88) was a designer and manufacturer of optical instruments, and founder of the Carl Zeiss Jena (now Carl Zeiss AG) company, renowned today for its optical and glass products. Starting out by making the best microscopes and scientific instruments in Germany, he later collaborated with physicist Ernst Abbe to design a new kind of optical lens that had little or no colour distortion. Today there are four planetariums named in his honour in Germany: Berlin, Bochum, Stuttgart and his home town of Jena.

Things to Do near the Carl Zeiss Planetarium

The Carl Zeiss Planetarium is at the southeast corner of the Mittlerer Schlossgarten, next to the Staatsgalerie U-Bahn station and an easy walk from the Hauptbahnhof station. You can complement your planetarium visit with a pleasant stroll in the gardens, or view the collection of 20th-century art in the neighbouring Staatsgalerie.
