Ever since 1938, the Dr. A.F. Philips Observatory at the Stadswandelpark has made it possible for the public to enjoy the view way beyond every day life, by stargazing into the universe.
Also today you’re still welcome to come and enjoy a view of the stars twice a month, including a tour of the historical building. Besides the view of the stars, there’s also a lot to learn. About the history of the building, technology and of course the stars.
Did you know, for example, that the building was sold by Philips to the Eindhoven municipality for the symbolic amount of 1 guilder? These and other fun facts you’ll discover during your visit.
