You are welcome to visit our observatory. Excursions for English speaking groups are available by prior appointment only by phone or email. Please be aware, that we are a research observatory and our main aim is to do research, therefore, we do not provide stargazing for visitors.

To reach us, we encourage you to use the red tourist trail, starting at the bus stop "Modra, Piesok, Zochova chata" and hike toward Veľká Homola (watchtower). The easy hike along the ski slope and through the forest takes about 15-20 minutes.

You can arrive to Zochova chata recreation area by the local bus from Bratislava to Zochova chata, which is the terminus station (Modra, Piesok, Zochova chata) or by a car. There is a large parking lot at Zochova chata.
