Observatory in the Alps
The summit of the Venet offers the unique chance to immerse yourself in the world of the sun and the night sky and to enjoy an unfettered view of the stars. The lights of Landeck are well hidden by the valley ridge of the summit plateau, so that the sky is sufficiently dark. The observatory is located at the top station of the Venet cable car, and is therefore easily accessible. In addition, the Venet summit hut is also readily accessible from the mountain station. The hut offers overnight accommodation, a panorama restaurant, and space for lectures, events and seminars. The new observatory boasts the necessary equipment for unobstructed observation of the stars and the night sky.
Another special feature is a telescope that allows a risk-free and fascinating view of our sun. By using appropriate filters, protuberances (glowing gas masses at the edge of the sun) can be experienced and even photographed - a highlight, which is thus far unique in the Alpine region. To all our guests, we say: Happy are those who look forward to the stars at sunset!
