Welcome to AIfA!

Welcome to the AIfA! The Argelander-Institut für Astronomie (AIfA) is an academic, research and educational institute that is part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Bonn, Germany. We conduct cutting-edge research over a broad range of theoretical and observational topics from stars to cosmology, as you can see from our Research page. Many national and international collaborations have partners in the AIfA, for example we have a close relationship with our neighbour, the Max-Planck Institut fuer Radioastronomie (MPIfR).
