In November 2022, the Astronomical Institute of the University of Bern (AIUB) will be able to celebrate a double anniversary: 200 years of the Uraniae Observatory and 100 years of the Astronomical Institute.
On Friday, 25 November and Saturday, 26 November 2022, the double anniversary will be celebrated with a ceremony, a scientific symposium and exciting activities for the general public at the University of Bern. A detailed commemorative publication will also be published.
In 1822, the first Uraniae Observatory was built at the current location of the building "Exakte Wissenschaften" (ExWi) at Sidlerstrasse 5 in Bern, exactly at the point that later defined the origin of the Swiss National Geodetic Survey. In 1922, the Muesmatt Observatory was then built and officially inaugurated as the Astronomical Institute of the University of Bern (AIUB) on 25 November 1922.
