October 29th – 31st, Lübeck, Germany
We are happy to announce that the next NPA conference will be held in the beautiful city of Lübeck – on the baltic coastline of Germany!
The Observatory Lübeck (in German: „Sternwarte Lübeck“) is happy to welcome the NPA members as official conference host, in collaboration with the Sternkammer – the worlds first school planetarium, opened 1931 at the former „Klosterhofschule“ in Lübeck and now modernized with a digital fulldome system.
Having a NPA meeting in Lübeck is a great chance to remake connections in the historic spirit of the old Hanse League between Lübeck and the Nordic countries, and networking with astronomy and planetaria networking.
In 2021, the primary school and college (today named Grund- und Gemeinschaftsschule St. Jürgen) including the historic planetarium is celebrating its 90th anniversary. It has been expanded with modern lecture rooms, a new main hall (ideal for vendor presentations) and a new restaurant – its Campus will be the main conference location. Also this year, the observatory reopened with a new observation tower in a new location after 5 years of renovation. Further conference locations will be downtown the historic city of Lübeck that is an official Unesco heritage. Exciting pre- and post conference options including a visit to the Hamburg Planetarium and the Nordic Film Days film festival will make the conference a very unique experience.
Please revisit and check this website within the upcoming weeks as we are about to release further details soon, including a preliminary program, registration process and several amazing highlights and surprises.
You can also visit the NPA facebook page for further news.
This announcement may be subjected to changes due to corona situation.
