Guided Tours & Prices

Of course, the observatory is also available to those not staying at the hotel with us. We would be happy to host you and require that you call or email ahead of time to sign up for one of our touring options.

Nature and the starry sky offer us an inexhaustible amount of awesome possibilities, which we are happy to bring closer to you within the framework of one of our guided tours. However, we must point out that our star tours are always dependent on Mother Nature. It is not always possible to see everything space has to offer as a result. To be up front, we must also state that we are unable to offer refunds due to inclement weather conditions.
