Our products travel the world from our headquarters in the tranquil town of Rhede in Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia. Visitors to our headquarters can explore theme-based showrooms and get to know our complete range of products. Our large on-site warehouse helps to ensure constant supply capability. In order to that we can give our customers the best possible quality at all times, we have constructed comprehensive test facilities in Rhede. In our dust-free optical laboratory, we evaluate our optics to ensure performance capability and colour purity. Plus, our on-site observatory is the ideal location to put our telescopes through their paces. In addition, we are always keen to encourage others to quench their thirst for knowledge. As such, BRESSER runs a range of promotions for young and old explorers alike as part of a series of internal and external events.

Follow new paths With an exciting range of products, BRESSER has made a name for itself beyond the field of optics. Wireless and remote-fed weather stations have been a cornerstone of the range for several years, plus the varied range of photo studio products remains popular. BRESSER also supplies a number of different wildlife cameras, which are equipped with motion sensors so that users can keep a watchful eye on what is happening both day and night. Innovative technology also has a place at BRESSER, including 3D printers.

Shortly after its introduction in 2009, the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC brand gained a first-class reputation on the global astronomy scene.

And since weather and time play a major role in astronomy, weather stations and watches seem like the ideal way to complement the range.
