A pleasant walk to discover more about the planets and the Universe.

A walk to find out a little more about the Universe, the solar system, and the planets by passing along 2 themed paths.

We set off from the Helmut Ullrich Astronomic Observatory at Col Drusciè (taking the Freccia nel Cielo cablecar) and then follow the paths in a circular pattern so as to end back up at the Observatory.

Along the route boards with photos of the various planets and stars are on display – all are distanced one from the other at a scale ratio to their actual positions in the sky.
