Guided visit to the Archenhold observatory

We invite the participants of EPSC2024 to visit the oldest and largest public observatory in Germany, in Berlin-Treptow. In this house, P. Lowel and A. Einstein have given public lectures. We will visit the world-longest refracting telescope built in 1896 with a focal length of 21 metres, see the discovery telescopes of the minor planets (6) Hebe and (433) Eros and can see the (artificial) stars in the newly installed Zeiss ZKP 4 planetarium. A 500 mm Cassegrain telescope and a 286 kg piece of the Arizona meteorite can also be viewed. For more information about the observatory and the adress, please visit their website.
