    The Science Park Albert Einstein and other research facilities are located on the Telegrafenberg in Potsdam. It is named after the physicist Albert Einstein. The most famous building in the science park is the Einstein Tower, which was built to experimentally test its theory of relativity.
    As early as the middle of the 19th century, the science park was created on the Telegrafenberg according to plans by the architect Paul Emanuel Spieker. Various astronomical, meteorological and geoscientific observatories were built, integrated into an English landscape garden. The most famous buildings include the Einstein Tower and the Great Refractor, which today belong to the Astrophysical Institute Potsdam.
    The following newly founded institutes, which form the Albert Einstein Science Park, have been on the site since 1992:
    German Research Center for Geosciences, Potsdam Research Center of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
    The Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam, also newly founded in 1992, moved its headquarters to Babelsberg and operates the historic telescopes Großer Refraktor and Einsteinturm and their exhibitions.
        Meteorological Observatory Potsdam of the German Weather Service
    In the 1990s, the historic buildings were extensively renovated and numerous new buildings were built.
