A general framework for understanding Kepler-type dynamical symmetries is presented. The main concern is the geodesic motion in Euclidean Taub-NUT space, which approximates the scattering of self-dual monopoles for long distances. Other examples include a test particle moving in the asymptotic field of a self-dual monopole and two other related metrics.
