In the 15 years since its construction, the H.E.S.S. gamma-ray observatory has allowed the study of the Very High Energy gamma-ray sky at resolutions and sensitivities which were never before possible. During this period H.E.S.S. has discovered a rich zoo of both galactic and extra galactic source classes, made measurements of the galactic cosmic ray spectrum and placed limits on fundamental physical processes. A summary of the latest H.E.S.S. results for these source classes has been presented at the conference, describing the most interesting new observations and their physical interpretation. Additionally the latest upgrades and improvements to the H.E.S.S. hardware and data analyses, and the future science prospects for the experiment have been described.
