Your experience

Highlights

  • See the stars in the world's largest solar observatory as you look into some of the galaxy's most powerful telescopes
  • Learn more about the importance of astrophysics and solar observation in the interactive group workshop
  • Explore the interior and exterior of these gigantic telescopes in the strange landscapes of Teide

Description

The views from Teide on Tenerife are already among the best in the world. What if you can now look even further afield? At the famous Teide Observatory, you can look beyond the breathtaking volcanic island landscape and into the depths of the universe with your telescopes.

The Teide Observatory is far from Galileo's original spy goggles. These mammoth observatories are the greatest and truly most spaceworthy achievements - towering constructions that you can enter and explore for yourself.

If your knowledge of astrophysics is a little rusty, the expert guide will be at your disposal to explain why the Canary Islands are so suitable for observing stars and to explain the intricacies of robotic astronomy.

After an information workshop, you are ready to man the riflescopes yourself and look at our own sun. You will be able to see real sunspots and solar flares, so prepare for an experience that really lies outside this world!
