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.


The Amerikan Physical Society (APS) honors Prof. Dr. Matthias Bartelmann as Outstanding Referee for quality, number and timeliness of his reports. (23.02.2018)

Alfred Wegener (1880 -1930) is known for his theory of continental drift. He first studied astronomy and received his PhD in 1905 at ARI in Berlin. In his new book, Roland and Ute Wielen describe how Wegener prepared his dissertation. (22.02.2018)

Die Astrophysikerin Dr. Gabriella De Lucia ist mit dem Forschungspreis der Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung ab Februar 2018 zu Gast am Astronomischen Rechen-Institut. (11.12.2017)

Das Bundesminsterium der Finanzen würdigt mit der Herausgabe von Sondermarken die Erfolge des Gravitationswellendetektors LIGO und des Astrometriesatelliten Gaia. (7.12.2017)
