The Planet Path begins below the FXB Observatory and runs opposite the impressive 4,000 metre-high peaks of the Valais Alps, at an altitude that stays between 2,200 metres and 2,500 metres.
The path is 6 km long in total and tells you about the 9 planets in our solar system. Two separate scales are used: 1 metre to 1 million kilometres for walking distances and 1 cm to 1000 km for the diameters of the planets. Nature lovers can access the path on foot all year round, via St. Luc or Chandolin. Stargazing evenings are organised for the public several times a year and these provide the opportunity of observing the sun and the moon.
