Archenhold Sternwarte information
The star exhibit at Germany’s oldest astronomical observatory is the 21m-long refracting telescope (the world's longest), built in 1896 by astronomer Friedrich Simon Archenhold. Between October and March, you can look through it at 8pm on the second and fourth Friday of the month. Other exhibits are a bit ho-hum but still impart fascinating nuggets about the planetary system, astronomy in general and the history of the observatory.
