Visit Ghent University’s Armand Pien Public Observatory

Patrimonium

At our weather station, you can find out how weather measurements have evolved over the past century. And you can enjoy a unique view over Ghent from our weather garden. Don’t miss our showpiece in the big dome, the old telescope of Van Monckhoven from 1880, which is still in perfect condition. If the weather is favourable, we can also look at the sun.

 

The Public Observatory is open every day, 13.00 to 17.00 hrs. Our enthusiastic staff will be only too pleased to tell you everything you want to know.
