Einsteinturm is an astrophysical observatory in the Albert Einstein Science Park in Potsdam, Germany built by Erich Mendelsohn. It was built on the summit of the Potsdam Telegraphenberg to house a solar telescope designed by the astronomer Erwin Finlay-Freundlich.

The telescope supports experiments and observations to validate (or disprove) Albert Einstein’s relativity theory.

The building was first conceived around 1917, built from 1919-21, and became operational in 1924.

Although Einstein never worked there, he supported the construction and operation of the telescope. It is still a working solar observatory, part of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam.
