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