An astronomy-gastronomy event
Every year, four to six astronomy evenings are organized on the Gurten. Each of these evenings is dedicated to a specific astronomy theme relating to current circumstances.
By means of clear explanations, participants learn about the impressive properties of the solar system and the universe. Professionals from the Astroevents association explain the astronomical concepts with the help of easy-to-understand models. In the practical part, interesting information is provided about the constellations, while the stars and planets can be observed through several professional telescopes.
The astronomy evenings are organized in cooperation with Astroevents.
