Information for Pupils and Teachers

From internships to the annual Girls' Day, from guided tours and public talks to highly popular (but rare) Open Days on the Königstuhl, there's a lot on offer for pupils and/or their teachers at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy.

The HdA offers workshops in English on a case-by-case basis.
