Do you find the vast universe fascinating? In Cosmodrome, a huge star bowl at the Hoge Kempen National Park in Genk, you will witness a high-tech spectacle about space. Buzzing planets, burning stars... Here you will experience the cosmos like an astronaut, complete with a visit to the Frank De Winne space station. In 360 degrees you will travel between the stars and comets into the past, the present and the future. An impressive experience, whether you are 6 or 66.

In the observatory, you will learn everything there is to know about the stars and the planets, as well as about comets, meteors and other celestial bodies. You will learn more about large and small crater impacts and will even survey the heavens yourself using a three-metre long telescope.
