The Conrad Observatory focuses on observing a wide variety of physical parameters on and below the ground. Because of its remote and largely underground location, it provides an ideal measuring environment. In addition to conducting observations, the Conrad Observatory makes various measuring units, tool pods, and drill holes available for the development of new instruments, calibrations, and work on their research projects.


Among other things, the Conrad Observatory measures earthquakes and changes in the earth’s gravity and magnetic field as well as geodetic and meteorological parameters. The Conrad Observatory plays an integral part in numerous national and international projects where it partners with universities, governmental organisations, businesses, and other research centres.
