If you have ever felt small - don't go to his show. It was absolutely amazing seeing what all is out there. Really worth a trip

I have enjoyed Jurg's shows in the past but he really has gone to a lot of trouble to improve the facilities even more. His enthusiasm for astronomy is infectious!

Definitely a trip to make some time for. Jurg has a small presentation and explanation and then takes you outside to view the stars on one of his 6 telescopes. Lovely explanations and a really friendly guide. Even room for the kids!

Even though we couldn't really get the full spectacle because it was full moon, we still enjoyed the experience. Jurg is very knowledgable and the close ups of the planets and moon was very special

Under the guidance of Jurg, the 2 hours spent star gazing, went by rapidly. We were fortunate to have a clear sky. Saturn, Jupiter etc were seen and all explained in a professional manner. Really worth a visit, just 1 km out of Sutherland.

Was recommended by our host from Skitterland to go see the stars with Jurg. It was a great experience and we even saw the circles around Saturn which was amazing.

Unfortunately we only have public roads and no specific trails in the area. The only 4x4 farm is Skurweberg 50 km from here. Thank you, Jurg
