In the middle of the icy and pitch black winter night you will experience special celestial events like shooting star nights, meteor showers, full moons.... up close.
The unspoiled high valley is far away from brightly lit cities and light sources and is therefore ideal for marveling at the thousands of twinkling constellations under expert guidance. After an approx. half-hour hike, a crackling campfire, steaming punch and mulled wine await you. Our nature education guides will accompany you on the picnic under the stars on the following dates:
- 13. December, Geminid shooting star night (alternative date 12/14/2023)
The Geminid meteor stream lights up the firmament with its shooting stars in the period December 4 - 20. On the night of December 13, we expect the most meteors - up to 120 per hour!
