Owner description: A different way to holiday. Change a beach program to an educational program in the star garden. Apartments and observatory offers a remarkable experience, panoramic view, breathtaking night scenery, relaxation, instruments of observatory, refreshment, performance of the enthusiastic and hospitable owner Stergos Manolakas. The scenic location that the "Hipparchos" Οbservatory is housed, offers at its guests the privilege of tranquility close to nature and breathtaking scenery. The guest has the opportunity to live an experience of observational Astronomy with our instruments of "Hipparchus" observatory, observing the moon, planets, nebulae, galaxies, and many other astronomical objects of the starry sky. Made with care in our star-garden the guest can observe uranography, even find out how a live sundial works and see a static geographical compass orientation, and much more... Η πρόσβαση στο αστεροσκοπείο επιτρέπεται σε παιδιά μόνο άνω των 7 ετών. Access to the observatory allowed only for children older than 7 years. Zutritt zur Sternwarte nur für Kinder über 7 Jahre. Вход в обсерваторию разрешён только с детьми старше 7 лет How to find us: Coming from the highway Rhodes Town to Lindos you pass some traffic lights, after the road to Faliraki Centre and the St. Nektarios Church and about 150 meters away you find the next set of traffic lights where you branch off left and continue the street on the right. Pass Evi-hotel and a small Roundabout. Continue about 350 meters then go right towards Liberia-hotel, on the left there is a Tennis court. After about 650 meters you will find a crossing (Profitis Amos Church) here take the middle street way, so you will find after 250 meters two yellow buildings. Passing by take the street right hand up the hill. Then turn left.

The cafe has possibly the best milkshakes on the island!
Stergos the owner is very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour of his observatory (including use of telescope).
Go at sunset to check out the nice view of Anthony Quinn Bay

Very beautiful view over the sea from the restaurant. Very delicious pancakes!
It was an exciting experience to watch the sky! Especially the view of Saturn!
Good for the price.

Went there 2 nights ago and we both think it is the best activity we've done in Rhodes. At only €4 pp, you get to see the moon and the stars through a telescope!
There's a café and a small garden in addition to the observatory, with a great view. We recommend you come early as they only let in a few people at a time to the observatory! Someone posted earlier that you don't get any photos, but he took photos of the moon (on our mobiles) through the telescope and it looks great!

The cafe serves drinks, snacks and some food. Service was great, they called us a cab and let us know when it had arrived.
