Because I know many people enjoy this (including myself), I want to say that in Lille you can find a Planetarium, even a really nice one. It is located inside 'Le Forum des Sciences', a tribute to science all across the world. The entry fares for the Planetarium are 5 euros the full price and 3.5 euros with reduction. It is opened from Tuesday to Friday from 10 AM to 5:30 PM and on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 2:30 PM to 6:30 PM. The best way to get there is to take the metro, direction 4 Cantos and to get off to station Villeneuve d'Ascq Hôtel de Ville. From there there is only a little walk until arrival.

Address:
1B, Chaussée de l'Hôtel de Ville, 59650 Villeneuve-d'Ascq, France

    Just on the Vabaun Street, there is a big park, called ... the Vabaun. The gardens spread over three hectares and what surprised me is that it tries to be as natural as possible, and it succeeds. It's really a oasis of relaxation and, maybe [...]

Lille Travel guide

   Prior to the 1960s and the 1970s, the city of Lille was known as an important city for various industries like coal, mining and textiles.
