Re: Family Friendly places to visit in Switzerland

The Urania observatory does a free Kinderführungen (in German) on the first Saturday of each month. Kids and parents are allowed to look through the telescope - we saw a really distant star (Arktur I think) then got to see the surface of the sun (after the telescope had it's sunglasses/ sun filter on). My kids found it fascinating. I'd really recommend it and am hoping to go to one of the evening talks soon.

There are 3 talks, starting at 3pm, 4pm and 5pm - full details on the website
