We welcome you to the Society of Austrian Planetariums. Our society is an association which aims to promote cooperation and collaboration between Austrian planetariums, to support education and training for all age groups in the fields of astronomy, natural sciences and space sciences, and to initiate and carry out projects in the field of astronomy and related fields of knowledge. The Society’s activities are charitable and not for profit.
The history of our society goes back to 2001, when the then directors of the planetariums in Vienna, Klagenfurt and Schwaz met for the first time for a joint meeting. This resulted in a cooperation agreement between these three planetariums in 2003 and the first show production activities followed. The inaugural meeting of the current society took place on 13 November 2006, also by the then directors of the planetariums in Vienna, Klagenfurt and Schwaz.
