dc.description.abstractStellar clusters are potential acceleration sites of very-high-energy (VHE, E> 100GeV) particles since they host supernova remnants (SNRs) and pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe). Additionally, in stellar clusters, particles can also be accelerated e.g. at the boundaries of wind-blown bubbles, in colliding wind zones in massive binary systems or in the framework of collective wind or wind/supernova(SN) ejecta scenarios. Motivated by the detection of VHE-ray emission towards Westerlund 2 and assuming similar particle acceleration mechanisms at work, Westerlund 1 is an even more promising target for VHE -ray observations given that massive star content and distance are more favourable for detectable VHE -ray emission compared to Westerlund 2. Here, H.E.S.S. observations of massive stellar clusters in general with special emphasis on the most massive stellar cluster in the galaxy, Westerlund 1 are summarized.en
