Gammapy is a Python package for high-level gamma-ray data analysis built on Numpy, Scipy and Astropy. It enables to analyse gamma-ray data and to create sky images, spectra and lightcurves, from event lists and instrument response information, as to determine the position, morphology and spectra of gamma-ray sources.

So far Gammapy has mostly been used to analyse data from H.E.S.S. and Fermi-LAT, and is now being used for the simulation and analysis of observations from the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). We have proposed Gammapy as a prototype for the CTA science tools. This contribution gives an overview of the Gammapy package and shows an analysis application example with simulated CTA data.
