  • Go in the evening to the Urania Observatory for a drink and you will have one ob the best views over Zurich.  more »
  • The Astronomical Observatory is located above the bar Jules Verne. There are guided tours in German from Thursday to Saturday at 8 pm during winter time and 21 hours in summer. Entry costs 15 CHF for adults and CHF 5 for children 6 to 16 years. As the sky was overcast this evening, we have not seen the stars, but our guide we talked of the telescope and shown the sky of the day using a computer. In the room, it was cold; Luckily, we were well-dressed.

  • The building of the Observatory well noticeable from many corners of the city-polusharobraznaja roof rises in the middle of the old town centre. Nowadays the Observatory is interesting from a historical point of view rather than from the scientific-even on clear nights the light pollution from the city to see only the brightest luminaries. But with the Observatory you can see beautiful views of the city in the afternoon.
