  • Great and amazing place. A definite must see.
  • Love it. Would like to visit again.
  • This Observatorium might not be a huge attraction for tourists, but if you're interested in science or astronomy of any kind, this is absolutely worth the walk. They sometimes even offer really interesting presentations, but you should probably check if they currently have anything planned before you go
