  • An oldest and historical observatory in Indonesia. A right place to observe and to do some research and know more about space, star, and so on..., especially for students or whoever interested with astronomy. About 1.5 hour from downtown. We need an appointment or reservation before visiting this place. Located in highland with great and nice open space, fully with fresh air, in North Bandung.
  • Your place to forget the tension and hectic of works Love the sceneries and atmosphere here For you who loved astronomy this is it, and for parents, this is a good way to introduce what outside the earth to the kids. So entertaining
  • Having a chance to visit Bosscha Observatory is a precious chance. I can gaze the star here at night, but only on April to October. I had an experience gazing the Jupiter once. It is amazing! The ticket is only for IDR 20K, but if you come on Saturday, without gazing to the star, the ticket is only 15k. The ticket includes a short tour in Bosscha Observatory, including a presentation in Koppel Building and watching animation in Multimedia Room. It is better to book at night tour since it will be amazing gazing the star, and even, I had a chance to gaze at Jupiter. Cool and awesome experience!
  • We stayed nearby and walked there on foot. We couldn't get inside, they only open for public on Saturday afternoon. They are closed on public holiday, sunday & monday. Other weekdays, you need to apply written permission long before you visit.
  • It's a good place for taking the beauty of scenery and big telescope in Indonesia. Furthermore, place to play piano (member only) haha
