An exhilarating walk through the universe with star guide Tobias Muster.
Anyone who has ever lain in a dark place under a twinkling starry sky on a clear night will probably remember the majesty of this sight for a lifetime.
On the Glücks-Sterndl hike, we will hike a short distance from Gasteig up to the Bacheralm area, where we will make ourselves comfortable on the alpine meadow under the dark starry sky with the sleeping mats and blankets we have brought with us.
With binoculars, a laser pointer and relaxation exercises, we will dive deep into this "greatest picture book of mankind" above us, while at the same time feeling more and more connected to the earth below. In the second part, we set off on an even deeper journey of discovery through the universe with a mobile telescope that we have brought with us. What remains is a feeling of gratitude for the good fortune of being able to surf through space on this unique blue planet Earth.
