"Juri Gagarin" astronomical observatory in Eilenburg
Planetarium on the Mansberg
The Juri Gagarin Eilenburger Astronomical observatory has been a destination for astronomy fans since 1964. The planetarium on the Mansberg has a dome diameter of 6 metres and offers space for 40 people. We host age-appropriate talks for school groups and public family sessions. From October to March, regular viewing evenings are also offered. The powerful and computer-controlled reflector telescope allows spectators a closer look at the starry sky.
Along the planet hiking trail, which begins to the south-west at the Eilenburg wildlife park and leads to the Bobritzsch dam, the distances and sizes of our planetary system are presented over a stretch of 2.8 km.
