About us

The observatory and planetarium is owned by a private foundation and we are responsible for the operation and maintenance. The mission of our registered non-profit organization is to bring basic knowledge about the universe closer to the general public.

Our visitor tours includes a lecture of basic information about the observatory and our mission, a guided planetarium show with a full dome digital projection system and stargazing through the DK700 28” Cassegrain and several smaller telescopes.CCD cameras and spectroscopes are available for our members to dive deeper into the matter.

There is a monthly public “full moon meeting“ with presentations and discussions about astronomy.
