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.

With high humidity after rain or snow, I need to cover the scopes with plastic but once all the scopes are running, viewing different objects goes faster. Thank you for sharing your time with me and the beautiful Universe.

My friend and I visited Sutherland and our first stop was at Sterland. The presentation before stargazing was extremely informative as was the stargazing thereafter in the cold night air. We were fortunate to have partially clear skies and saw all the stars and planets...More

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
