We describe the work of the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (GAVO). GAVO is the German node in the world-wide international virtual observatory (VObs) effort aimed at making geographically distributed astrophysical data and applications more readily available to the commu-nity and to find ways of combining these in an interoper-able network so as to create new ways of doing science. In this presentation we give a short overview of the ideas be-hind the virtual observatory and describe the efforts of the International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA). We de-scribe then in detail the activities of GAVO, both in its first pilot phase and in the recently initiated second phase.
