Lund Observatory is located about 2 km north-east from the centre of Lund, at the intersection of Sölvegatan and Tornavägen. Visitors can look for the city's old water tower, as the observatory is located right next to it.
Before 2001 Lund Observatory was located in the city's park just south of the train station. The old observatory building (from 1867) still stands in the park, although the astronomers are no longer there. Do not be fooled by maps showing this as the location of Lund Observatory (e.g. google maps).
