It doesn’t take more than a glance up into the night sky to realise that the starry sky above the Aletsch Arena is something very special. With all the big cit-ies being so far away, there is hardly any light pollution here. The starry expanse above the UNESCO World Heritage Site is still a boundless sea of billions of stars. Awe-inspiring, fascinating, dumbfounding.

Star photography workshops with award-winning photographer and time-lapse videographer Markus Eichenberger. The Horli Hitta on the Eggishorn is turned into a base camp for a night. The workshops are specifically for star photography and are suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced photographers. With up to 160 shooting stars per hour, the Perseid meteor shower is an amazing experience for stargazers too.
