A visit to Tamm's obsrvatory in Sweden

How many times have you found a big observatory out in the forest ? When I and my girlfriend was out in the forest and looking for Sweden's ancient history we did not only found one observatory, we found three !

It's one of the observatories that was in the article about old Swedish observatories that I translated to english.

My photos and some complement with information from this event:

Hi Lars


Thanks for posting this. I wonder how much of Tycho Brahe's observatory is in other buildings.

Zero. I wish there was this sort of thing dotted about in our forests! Thanks for sharing this, Lars

I talked to my friend Gunnar, he told me that he visited the oldest observatory on the top of the hill in the 1970s. Already then it was an empty building.

I have also written to Uppsala University and asked if it's possible to do a visit and have a look inside in the future, no answer yet.
