Our idea is astrotourism.
Enjoy the tranquility of nature and the view of the vastness of the sea at the Astronomy Cafe in a preferred location. With the telescopes of the two observatories in the Astronomy Café you have the opportunity to observe the sun, moon, planets, galaxies and much more with your own eyes.
The most impressive pictures are those of the moon craters to be admired. Please note that the moon is not visible in the sky every night.
Our solar telescopes are equipped with special protective filters. Experience live the chromospheric and photospheric phenomena on the surface of our sun. Giant protuberances, solar flares, sunspots, spicules and cranules become visible with the special solar telescopes.
NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN WITH BARE EYES. RISK OF BLINDING!
Access to the observatory is only allowed to children who are older than 7 years.
We are the first to offer an astro-garden with a special observation place for the summer – solstice with bearing mark, a static geographic compass with distance informations, a representation of the largest known stars and much more..
In the lovingly designed “star garden” with its astronomical / geographical demonstration objects such as the “living sundial”, celestial science can be experienced “live” and is made understandable for everyone through play.
THE OBSERVATIONS IN THE OBSERVATORIES ARE LIMITED TO 30 MINUTES.
