The European Southern Observatory is an international European organisation for ground-based research in astronomy. After describing the organisation and its existing observational facilities, like the Very Large Telescope and the Atacama Large Millimiter Array, I will present the current plans for future facilities, concentrating in particular on the Extremely Large Telescope, which is going to be the largest existing optical telescope.
