Experience the starry sky & starry nights

Starry nights on the Kaunertal Glacier Road

Diving into the vastness of the universe – the Kaunertal Glacier Road provides safe access to a magical place in the middle of a mountain world formed by glacier ice at about 2000m, the Gepatsch in the Kaunertal Valley.

Here, away from the cities and far away from the artificial light, you can experience an unforgettable deep view into a dark night sky, the history of the universe and also of time.

Accompanied by experts, you will learn about the stars and constellations and their significance for mankind, for our orientation and for the creation of stories and world views. Signs of the times in the Kaunertal Valley, in our galaxy and the universe will give you new insights into dimensions at the limit of your imagination.

To round off the day, you can take a night-time break at the Gepatschhaus, Austria’s oldest alpine club hut, to relive the impressions.
