What connects the Alpine Daphne with Venus and the Silver Thistle with the moon?
This tour with Rita Weibel, a passionate excursion guide and graduate surveyor (ETH), lets you experience the alpine flora of the Aletsch Arena with all your senses. Have fun learning a great deal about how the characteristics of the planets are reflected in the world of plants and how they find expression in our lives.

Based on the flowers we encounter on the way and the topics closest to your heart – including in relation to astronomy – you can look forward to a colourful bouquet of insights – and you might even discover your favourite flower as you go.
