In no time at all this modern building has become the new landmark of Copenhagen, and has contributed to the beauty of the city. It is situated just by Sankt Jørgens Sø. The building was erected during the late 1980s, financed by private means. Most importantly the building contains the huge omnimax cinema where films about nature and the universe are shown with computer-graphic and optical techniques, giving the spectator the feeling that he is actually walking by the river in the Grand Canyon or flying in the galaxies. At the Planetarium you can also learn about the development of astronomy from the middle ages, when Tycho Brahe lived (1546-1601), until today. The side of the Planetarium that turns towards the lake has become a popular place for the people of Copenhagen to gather during the summer. Inside the Planetarium there is an excellent restaurant called Cassiopeia.
