Event information

Along the Sundial Trail and around the summit of the Hohe Salve we go on an exciting journey through our solar system. At interactive stations we will be introduced to the history of celestial oberservation from early times until the present day and we will learn how to tell the time from the position of the sun. The highlight of our solar tour will be the up-close observation of the sun through a mobile solar telescope. With a bit of luck we may even discover sunspots and other structures on the sun surface.

Meeting place: Salvenkirchlein Hohe Salve (good weather only).
Registration until 5 pm the day before
Max. 12 participants
Duration: 1,5 -2 hrs
Cost: € 15,00 per person, lift ticket (up- and downhill ride) not included
