The Effelsberg 100-m Radio Telescope is a radio telescope in Bad Münstereifel, Germany, inaugurated on 1 August 1972.
It is operated by the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn.

 For 29 years the Effelsberg Radio Telescope was the largest fully steerable radio telescope on Earth.
In 2000, it was surpassed by the Green Bank Telescope, US, which has a slightly larger elliptical 100 by 110-metre aperture.
The telescope is part of the Event Horizon Telescope, and in part made the first picture of a Supermassive black hole
