The managing scientist of the Haus der Astronomie (HdA) is Markus Pössel. The HdA is the result of a partnership between the Max Planck Society (operating partner), the Klaus Tschira Foundation (which managed the construction of the new building), the University of Heidelberg and the City of Heidelberg.
Our work is expertly supported by the non-profit association Astronomieschule e.V., which is chaired by Uwe Herbstmeier.
The HdA building also houses the editorial offices of the popular astronomy magazine Sterne und Weltraum, which has been published at the Königstuhl since 1962. The magazine's editor-in-chief is Uwe Reichert.
