A peek into the astronomical observatory

The astronomical observatory building is now the home of the Institute for Science Education. Join us for a look inside the structure

A beautiful old observatory provides a unique facility for the Department for Science Education. A department that has no parallel anywhere else in Denmark: Join us for a glimpse into the unique structures here courtesy of Universitetsavisen.

The old observatory lies partially hidden behind the vegetation of the Botanical Garden, but from the windows and balconies there is a commanding view over the roofs of Copenhagen and the greenhouses of the garden.

The astronomical observatory was one of the historical buildings that passed over to University of Copenhagen ownership earlier this year. See more of the University of Copenhagen’s historical buildings here.
