Abstract: The Galactic Center is a prominent source in X-rays and gamma-rays and thestudy of its high-energy emission is crucial in understanding the physicalphenomena taking place in its dense and extreme environment, phenomena that arepossibly common to other galactic nuclei. However this emission is also verycomplex and consists of both thermal and non thermal radiation produced bycompact and extended sources, surrounded by more diffuse components. In spiteof the fundamental advances obtained in the last ten years with Chandra,XMM-Newton, INTEGRAL, HESS and Suzaku several questions remain open toinvestigations. I will review here the main results and the open issues on thehigh-energy diagnostic of the galactic nuclear activity.
