Appointments for Astronomical Tours
If you want I can offer a fixed date for the tour. In case of bad weather observing the sky with the testescope is dropped. Instead I offer a tour through the observatory including an explanation of the astronomical equipment. Additionall there wil be a lecture on astronomical themes (duration of the lecture about one hour).
Optionally a new date can be fixed!
for having a better chance of fair weather you can be placed on a waiting list. As soon as fair weather is likely to occure, and - as well - the astronomical situation is convenient, I contact the interested parties and fix an appointment.
Please note, that for organisational reasons bookings can only be accepted for groups. The tours are then exclusively held for those groups.
Group size is optimaly up to eight persons, the absolute maximum ist ten.
This contact or booking does not oblige you to anything!
You will only get additional informations!
Entrance to the observatory needs the most current pandemic rules (Covid-19 etc.) to be followed!
Please take the corresponding certificate with you!
