Visiting MPA

Guests can visit the the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics after they have made an appointment with the Public Outreach office.

Please book your visit in good time by phone or in writing (for contact details, see right column) as there are only a limited number of slots available.

School classes and other groups can visit the MPA on request. A visit to the institute can include either a live presentation in our digital planetarium or a talk by one of our scientists about a specific astrophysical topic.

The programme can be presented in German, English or possibly other languages.

Please note that every two years, the MPA also takes part in the Open Day of the Campus Garching, where you also have a chance to visit our institute and discuss with our scientific staff.
