Over the past few years, very‐high‐energy gamma‐ray astronomy has emerged as a truly observational discipline, with many detected sources representing different galactic and extragalactic source populations ‐supernova remnants, pulsar wind nebulae, giant molecular clouds, star formation regions, compact binary systems and active galactic nuclei. The H.E.S.S. array of imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes has revealed a sky full of sources of very high energy γ‐rays, challenging our knowledge of particle acceleration (either hadronic or leptonic) and propagation in environments with extreme conditions. We will review the latest results published and discus the most interesting cases.
