Welcome to ZAH

The Zentrum für Astronomie der Universität Heidelberg (ZAH) joins the institutes Astronomisches Rechen-Institut (ARI), Landessternwarte Königstuhl (LSW) and Institut für Theoretische Astrophysik (ITA). Its spectrum of research and teaching activities ranges from planet formation and galaxy evolution to cosmology and state of the art computer physics in parallel with the development and assembly of instrumentation for telescopes and participation in satellite projects.
