The observatory is located in beautiful natural surroundings on a hill above the town. The astronomy hobby group preceded its establishment. In 1959 the main building was opened with an observation dome and the first telescopes were acquired. Today's observatory complex provides facilities for highly specialized activities and primarily for education and outreach work aimed at school children and the general public. The observatory offers guided observations of the night sky and a special daily observation of the sun. On the menu are a variety of public education programs, counselling and consultation. In summer, the observatory organizes camp type visits for children and young people with an interest in astronomy.
