Ticket sales for star gazing tours open on 1/9 at 9 AM.
Purchase tickets for a viewing at the newly renovated Ole Rømer Observatory. Here, you can catch a glimpse of distant stars and planets through the observatory's telescope or learn about astronomy in the 112-year-old building – depending on the weather. TICKET SALES OPEN ON SEPTEMBER 1ST AT 9 AM.
Visit the Ole Rømer Observatory, see the night sky through the observatory's telescopes, and explore the 112-year-old house. After a careful restoration, the Ole Rømer Observatory is once again ready to welcome guests for star viewings every weekday. Through the observatory's telescopes, we can take a look at the seasonal night sky with the stars and planets that we can see on the evening of the presentation. Perhaps we'll take a closer look at the Moon's craters, zoom in on Saturn's rings, spot a distant galaxy, or step outside to take a closer look at a constellation.
Viewings will take place regardless of the weather. If clouds cover the starry sky, we will instead explore the nooks and crannies of the observatory and tell astronomy stories about life in the Universe, current space journeys, or the observatory's history, while showing beautiful images from the large space telescopes.
Feel free to bring astronomy questions for the presenter and warm clothing - it's not fun to look at stars if you're freezing. There will be an opportunity to buy coffee, tea, or cocoa, but food should be left at home.
Approximately 20 evenings per month for viewings.
In October and April, the viewing is at 8 PM. In November, December, January, February, and March, it's at 7 PM. In week 7 and 42, there are viewings at 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM, also on weekends.
Doors open 10-15 minutes before and close when the viewings start.
May, June, July, August, and September: Closed.
