Uranienborg (Swedish: Uraniborg) was a Danish astronomical observatory operated by Tycho Brahe; built circa 1576-1580 on Hven, an island in the Øresund between Zealand and Scania, which at that time was part of Denmark. The observatory was shortly after its construction expanded with an underground facility, Stjerneborg, on an adjacent site. Uraniborg was demolished in 1601, shortly after Brahe fell out of favour with the Danish king and left the country, and Hven was later lost to Sweden. The Round Tower in Copenhagen was inaugurated in 1642 as a replacement.
