Abstract: Post-AGB stars evolve on a very fast track and hence not many are known. Their spectral properties make them, in principle, ideal objects to test our theories on the late phases of stellar evolution. This has, however, proven much more difficult than anticipated, mainly because the morphological, dynamical and chemical diversity in Galactic post-AGB stars is very large indeed. Here I focus on recent results and touch upon the bright near future of post-AGB research.
