Watching the stars in Zealand
If you want to get even closer to the night sky, the Brorfelde Observatory in Zealand houses Denmark’s largest stargazing telescope, Discovery. Through its lifetime, the telescope has been used to discover more than 100 asteroids and today, it is open to public. The experience centre opened in 2016 hosting all sorts of tours and events focusing on bringing people a little closer to the fascinating space.
The old buildings are listed and so is the dark night sky above the 40 hectare Brorfelde area in order to ensure a clear view of the stars. When you have had a look at the telescope and a hike through the area, it is recommended that you take a rest in one of the observatory’s open-air hammocks for the most chilled kind of space observation.
