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.
