The Urania Observatory, which is owned by the city of Vienna, was opened in 1910. At the end of World War II its cupola, and with it some instruments, had been destroyed. In 1957 the buidling was opened again. People visiting the Observatory, which is the oldest one in Austria open for public visit, get a comprehensive impression of stars, planets and the moon by watching the firmament through the telescope. Attention: Guided tours only in fair weather.
