Aristocratic and much-mustachioed Tycho Brahe (1546–1601) was the most important Danish astronomer of the 16th century and lived on the (now Swedish) island of Ven (spelt ‘Hven’ in Danish). His influence was so great that in 1642 the Rundetaarn (Round Tower) Observatory was built in Copenahgen’s Latin Quarter to carry on his work; his memory also lingers on today at the city’s planetarium.

Inaugurated in 1989, the planetarium is constructed of biscuit-and-blue bricks in a distinctive circular design and sits on the banks of St Jorgen’s Lake; it was designed by Danish architects MAA Knud Munk. Inside its space-age interior are two family-focused theaters; one showing 3D ‘edutainment’ movies on a continuous loop, covering a variety of subjects in the natural world from monsters of the deep to life in space. But the major attraction is the vast dome-shaped screen in the Space Theatre (children younger than three are not allowed in), where rapt audiences can immerse themselves in 3D and IMAX journeys through the universe.

Most movies are narrated in Danish but English translations are available via headsets for 20 DKK. The Planetarium also has a permanent exhibition of astronomy and space travel that addresses the mysteries of our galaxy, while the ‘Journey through Space’ exhibit looks at how astronauts survive in the Space Station. Free guided tours are provided during school holidays. The Planetarium is on the route of the hop-on, hop-off bus Carlsberg tour of Copenhagen.
