Come and have a look in the oldest rotating radio telescope in the world and listen to signals from the universe.
The Dwingeloo Radio Telescope is located on one of the busiest bicycle routes on the Dwingelderveld and with its 25-meter diameter, the telescope is almost impossible to miss. For passersby there are information boards about radio astronomy next to the telescope. The telescope is open to the public at some Sundays and Wednesdays during holydays, and special national and regional activities if the covid-19 measures allow. It is not yet possible to request group visits. Online demonstrations (in Dutch) are announced here or can be viewed here again.
