Guided Star Hike on Prebersee

As so often in summer, this community hike begins at dusk, shortly after sunset, meeting at the Ludlalm car park. Especially impressive: seeing the sky grow steadily darker above your head and gradually observing the stars emerge in the night sky. 

In summertime, this hike gives you a spectacular opportunity to look up into the heart of the Milky Way. You will also be able to marvel at the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter.
