Hamburg Observatory

The perfect place to throw a glance at the cosmos

Hamburg Observatory, in Bergedorf, built around 1900, is an ensemble of listed buildings of international standing and a collection of prized telescopes of cultural and historical importance.

Hamburg's only and at the same time Germany's largest observatory is located in Bergedorf on the Gojenberg. With a colourful, constantly changing programme of events, guided tours through the history of the observatory's origins as well as various special events, there is something for young and old, young and old. Book lovers can browse at will in the observatory's own library, which contains around 70,000 books on astronomy and astrophysics. The Café Raum & Zeit also offers the opportunity to relax with coffee and cake in an idyllic atmosphere.
