  • 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!
  • The oldest obversatory in Indonesia, located around 15 km north from Bandung, this place is located on a hill with the height of 1,301 meters above sea level. But, the place must be improved and don’t too much closed when the National Holiday comes.
  • It's a historic place.. The offer a night visit as well so visitor kan see stars and planets
  • The place can close early depending on various situations. Look up the website first before visiting. Definitely an option for summer holidays.
  • Amazing place for everyone who loves astronomy and space. We can stargaze through the small telescope, but they wouldn't permit us to use the biggest telescope. However, it still interesting though.
