Planning your stay

New moon phases

The best time for astronomy are the days around the new moon, because then no disturbing moonlight hinders the perception of faint objects in the sky. In the table opposite, we have therefore listed the time slots for an optimal astro vacation for the astro season 2020 and 2021. They start 1 week before and end 1 week after the new moon.

Since the 2020 season is canceled and we are making rebookings up to 2022, you can already reserve for 2022 and 2023!

Book your return flight as close as possible to the dates specified in the time window for the month in question.

Is there still an apartment available?

The tables show whether an apartment is still available in the new moon phase of the current year and the coming years that you want. It is generally advisable to book early.
