Due to maintenance, the radio telescope will be closed for guided tours in January, February, and March 2023.
Group interest and background
For groups we can organize a guided tour with a demonstration in the radio telescope. With these group tours, depending on the interest and background of the group, emphasis can be placed on the technology of the telescope, on astronomy or on amateur radio applications. The telescope is also interesting from the point of view of heritage.
Practice shows that we cannot properly facilitate groups larger than forty visitors. If your group consists of more than forty people, we cannot guarantee in advance that we can receive your group. Please note that the maximum number of visitors we receive simultaneously in the radio telescope is 12 people.
For tours we ask an entrance fee of:
- € 6.00 per adult
- € 3.00 per youngster (from 10 to 24 years)
- children up to 9 years are free
- donators and a second participant per donator are free.
- The costs for a tour with a demonstration depend on the number of participants but are always at least € 50.00.
- It is not always possible to pay by card for guided tours on request.
With your contribution CAMRAS can maintain the telescope, renew equipment and furnishing, and develop and renew materials for visitors, schoolchildren, and students.
