Guided Tours

Guided Tours

We have already organized several guided tours through the observatory for various events. There was, for example, a series of talks and tours on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the general theory of relativity. Also, the team of the observatory at the University of Oldenburg joins events like “Papa Zeit”.

During the winter of 2017/2018 there was a very successfull cooperation with the Schlaues Haus Oldenburg to show the observatory to small interested groups and to share some interesting Astronomy research. Additional events in this series will be announced here.

If you have any questions regarding guided tours, feel free to contact us.

Current information and details about the observatory, you can find here.

Most of our guided tours are supported by members of the Astro-AG as well as by members of Astromare from Wilhelmshaven. 

At this point we would like to thank all our hard working volunteers!
