What we’ll do

Have you ever wondered walking in the evening: how the Moon looks like through a telescope, how far is Mars, why is it so hard to travel in space, and what is there - beyond our solar system?

What else you should know

If you wear glasses, don't worry, you will still be able to use the telescope comfortably anyway as you can adjust its focal distance.

What I’ll provide

Equipment
Telescope 8" Schmidt–Cassegrain to be used by all of us.

Where you'll be

We will conduct our observations in Ooster park near Hotel Arena. As the evening can go a bit chilly we can have a hot tea or hot chocolate at the cafeteria over there.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 12 and up can attend. Please make sure to have warm clothes, as the weather might by a bit chilly.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

If you wear glasses, don't worry, you will still be able to use the telescope comfortably anyway as you can adjust its focal distance.
