An ultra-modern space centre and one of the main attractions of the FEZ. Around 2 million people, fascinated by space travel, have already visited the Orbitall, not to mention famous astronauts such as Sigmund Jähn, Reinhard Furrer, Edgar Mitchell, Waleri Bykowski, Reinhold Ewald, Thomas Reiter and Ulrich Walter.

While working closely with research institions for science and finance, we aim to bring the topic of space travel and our universe closer to a wider public, with a particular focus on children and young people. Orbitall tries to be informative, interactive and entertaining at the same time because we believe that when knowledge and learning is presented in the right way, each of our visitors leaves having enjoyed themselves.

Please note:
Due to limited parking, we recommend that you use public transport. A charge of €3 applies to all parking spaces at the FEZ.
