Spectacular birds-eye images of the galaxy-shaped Haus der Astronomie (our Center for Astronomy Education and Outreach here in Heidelberg), the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and the Königstuhl Observatory.
Der ehemalige MPIA-Mitarbeiter Sebastian Egner hat uns freundlicherweise Luftbilder des Königstuhls zur Verfügung gestellt, die er selbst aufgenommen hat.

Former MPIA employee Sebastian Egner kindly gave us aerial images that he took while flying over the Königstuhl.
