The observatory itself is surrounded by insignificant shrubs and grass. The rural landscape to the south consists mainly of pasture and cropland with patches of forested land. The livestock in the area is dominated by dairy cows and sheep. The nearest large town is the city of Groningen (200,000 inhabitants) at a distance of about 30 km in the ESE direction. The annual frequency of ESE winds, which could carry pollution from the city directly, is usually less than 1%.
