Gurten observatory: a journey through the night sky

The universe is complex. The experts at Astro Events know how to explain these complex physical phenomena of the universe in an understandable way, for both children and adults. Where can astronomical topics be explained more comprehensibly than in an observatory, where the ring of Saturn just explained can be observed directly through the telescope? 
From November to March, a child-friendly astronomy program is held evenry week under the professional supervision of Astro Events. The different celestial events are explained in a child-friendly way and can be observed with a telescope. In addition, the little ones can make astronomical objects, which they can take home as a souvenir.
The astronomical knowledge of the experts from Astro-Events not only inspires the little ones, but also makes the evening worthwhile for accompanying persons.
