The Sky disc discovered in 1999 near Nebra is the world's oldest concrete depiction of the cosmos. 3600 years ago, this bronze disc made it possible to determine calendar dates and link the solar and lunar calendars to each other. You can learn about the Sky Disc's astronomy in the planetarium of the Nebra Ark at the foot of Mittelberg hill. The visitor's centre reveals further dimensions of this famous discovery in a multimedia presentation of the Sky Disc's history. The original discovery spot is also revealed and explained to visitors.

Very interesting story on the sky-disc, an ancient find from the past (>4000 years ago) that neatly describes the lunar and sun calander. Museum is modern, well facilitated and also very suitable for childeren with animations and things to do.

Okay, it's near the place the disc was found, and a bus ride (or long hike) away. The original lies in Halle, and the visitors are presented with replicas and some history in a relatively modern format. As a museum it's certainly a bit of a one-note and not extensive. Still, it worth a visit and secondary exhibits change annually... More

the best experience is when the sun is shining there is an interesting show (20min) about the astronomy of the bronze age, the exhibition itself is quite small though (< 10 EUR) and then you can walk to the place where the famous sky disk was found (ca 3km), from an observation tower you have a great view over the...

Far away from anything interesting, but worthy the visit. For the fans of history a must. Very intersting architecture, great nature around, especially in summer and very innovative. Simply beautiful.

We loved our Arche Nebra visit. However the cafeteria was closed completely - due a change in leasehold.. That was a huge let down for us as we were hungry and had to find a place somewhere around....and this place is in the middle of nowhere. The tower was closed due to cold weather. I might be a little sarcastic... More
