Great Refractor Potsdam

One of the most striking features of the science park "Albert Einstein" on Telegraphenberg Hill in Potsdam is the "Great Refractor" - the world´s fourth largest refracting telescope, which was completed in 1899. This telescope bears tremendous witness to the optical precision manufacturing and early astrophysical science taking place at the turn of the 19th/20th century. The refractor can be visited at the previously indicated hours and upon guided tour arrangements.
