Observatory

Coming soon

In November 2021, the Monte Generoso observatory in Ticino is moving to the Gurten. For about quarter of a century, the observatory on the Monte Generoso above Mendrisio was open to schools and the public. It has now been dismantled and resurrected on the mountain above Bern – on the Gurten meadow close to the Gurten garden.

Work on the foundations for the observatory began recently. It will be opened as part of the "fun park opening" on March 20, 2022.

More information on the observatory and the operating concept will be provided shortly.
