Tycho Brahe

At the end of the 16th century he had an advanced research center at Hven with a castle and observatory.

Here, groundbreaking works and discoveries were made, primarily within astronomy, which formed the basis of our modern world view. At the museum you can admire Tycho both in our exhibition and in the places where he lived and worked.

Tycho Brahe is primarily famous for his astronomical work, but it is only a fraction of his overall work. Therefore, we also want to highlight his skills as an engineer, alchemist, astrologer, etc.

Tycho’s life and activities in words and pictures

The museum’s exhibition on the life and science of Tycho Brahe is shown in the former Allhelgonakyrkan.

In 2018, Tycho Brahe Museum is working on renewal and improvement of the exhibition in the former Allhelgonakyrkan. The current exhibition is 12 years old and has worked well, but new knowledge and new means of communication have been added over the years.

The new exhibition will move around Tycho Brahe, both as an individual and a scientist, as well as everyday life and the life in Uraniborg.

An underground observatory

The ruin of Tycho Brahe’s underground observatory is one of the museum’s highlights. Here are original releases of his facilities at Hven.

The idea was that the garden should reproduce the garden of Eden. Here, fruits and herbs were cultivated, which were later used in Tycho Brahe’s alchemical medicine worker.

When Tycho left Hven, the plant was gradually destroyed. However, from the 1990s it has to some extent re-emerged by reconstructing two-quarters. Among other things, plants that are known to have existed in Danish castle and monastery gardens in the 16th century have been planted.

A reconstructed renaissance garden

Around the Tycho Brahe Castle, Uraniborg, there was an amazing botanical garden. It was shaped into squares, triangles and circles according to the Renaissance of the Renaissance.

In 2018, Tycho Brahe Museum is working on renewal and improvement of the exhibition in the former Allhelgonakyrkan. The current exhibition is 12 years old and has worked well, but new knowledge and new means of communication have been added over the years.

The new exhibition will move around Tycho Brahe, both as an individual and a scientist, as well as everyday life and the life in Uraniborg.
