Open Day

An Open Day on the Königstuhl is a massive undertaking, involving hundreds of our employees and presenting the complete spectrum of the institute's work.

Unfortunately, MPIA is currently in an extended phase of construction, with several renovation and building projects ongoing, or scheduled for the coming years. During that phase, we will not be able to offer an Open Day on the Königstuhl. Instead, we present our work in different venues – recently as part of Researchers's Night, or our Max Planck Week in DAI Heidelberg, and regularly as part of the events (such as public talks) taking place in Haus der Astronomie.

The date for the next Open Day has not yet been set.

On Sunday, June 21, 2015, 10 am to 5 pm the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and Haus der Astronomie on Königstuhl will open their doors to the public for a behind-the-scenes look at cutting-edge astronomical research. [more]
For the Open Day 2012, more than 4000 visitors converged on Königstuhl to immerse themselves in astronomical research. This image gallery also shows what you can expect for the Open Day 2015 on June 21 on MPIA Campus. [more]
