In Essen's Schuir district, the Walter Hohmann Observatory is embedded in fields and woodland. In the vicinity of the branch of the German Weather Service (Wetteramt), a public observatory was erected here on Wallneyer Straße in the last decades. Despite its proximity to the big city, its relatively light-protected location offers the opportunity to observe the starry sky. For this purpose, several telescopes are available, which can be opened during the official opening hours under expert guidance starlight exploration routes. We ask the visitors of these evenings to bring always warm clothing (even in summer nights!).
