The IceCube detection of a flux of astrophysical neutrinos with energies up to few PeV marked the beginning of the high-energy neutrino astronomy era. In the next future, several other neutrino telescopes, currently under planning or construction, will explore the high-energy neutrino sky. In the light of the most recent developments in the field, I will review the expected emission of high-energy neutrinos from extra-galactic astrophysical sources as well as our chances to learn about cosmic accelerators by employing neutrinos.
