Open Day 2023
On Sunday, 24th September 2023, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and the House of Astronomy on the Königstuhl will open their doors and offer a diverse astronomical program.
Additional participants are the Landessternwarte Königstuhl, the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, the Forscherstation (Klaus-Tschira-Kompetenzzentrum für frühe naturwissenschaftliche Bildung) and other partners.
Lectures and hands-on stations will focus on new astronomical findings – from the formation of our galaxy and solar system to planets around other stars.
Laboratories and workshops show how astronomical instruments are made and the special requirements of working on the world's largest ground-based telescopes or on space telescopes.
For younger visitors, the House of Astronomy offers a children's program.
