What connects the daphne with Venus and the silver thistle with the moon?
On a tour with the passionate excursion guide and graduate surveyor ETH Rita Weibel, you will experience the alpine flower world of the Aletsch Arena with all your senses. In an entertaining way you will learn a lot about how we find the characteristics of the planets in our plant world and how these are expressed in our lives.
Based on which flowers we encounter along the way and which astronomy topics are particularly close to your heart, a colourful bouquet of knowledge awaits you and perhaps you will also discover your favourite flower.
