Here is a real challenge for the diehards amongst you

When searching for locations suitable for my last ‘theme’, I came across this location. But of course I rejected it as being too hard. But it might be fun to see if someone manages to find it. The clue is already given.

Contest #140 answer: Uraniborg, Hven Island, Denmark

We end this series (and the theme) were it all begun: The observatory of Tycho Brahe on the island of Hven in Denmark. Uranienborg was the first academic research centre for astronomics and constructed in 1576.

A few years later he built an underground observatory at the same location, (visible at the south-side of the road) called Stjerneborg.

Today the Stjerneborg observatory is restored and can be visited.
