VEGA Observatory House of Nature

Salzburg's gateway to space

14,26 km from Salzburg Residence Palace

House of nature operates one of the most powerful public observatories in Europe on the Haunsberg, about 20 km north of the city of Salzburg. The VEGA observatory Haus der Natur is a platform for science, education, culture and society. In contrast to pure research observatories, the focus is not only on scientific standards, but also on education and the social mission. The two powerful telescopes are used for research as well as for public star tours.

The so-called "Sterndal schauen" becomes an experience for young and old at the Haunsberg.

From the fascinating Milky Way to the infinite galactic expanses.

Every Monday and twice a month on Wednesday, telescopic star tours take place at VEGA's Haus der Natur observatory, weather permitting. Online registration is required for these star tours!
