Discover the secrets of the universe with mascot Luxi on a hike between the star villages of Gummer | S. Valentino and Steinegg | Collepietra
This theme trail connects the two star villages of Gummer | S. Valentino and Steinegg | Collepietra. On this varied hike, you can dive into the secrets of the starry sky and the universe together with our mascot LUXI at 7 different stations.
Through an oversized old camera at the beginning of the trail, you start or zoom yourself directly into the universe, so to speak. On the way, you will test a date sundial and a rotating star map, pass the observatory and solar observatory, learn how to orientate yourself in the night sky, children can let off steam in the rocket tree house and finally you will end up at the Mini Star Trail in Steinegg | Collepietra, which is illuminated in the evening in the correct colours of the respective stars.

Directions
The Path of the Stars begins a little above the centre of the small village of Gummer | S. Valentino at the 10th bend on the path [3]. Through the FRAME start station, which symbolises an oversized camera, the hiker zooms into the universe. At the Viltuner Säge, you take path [1B] and come to station 2 a little above the farm Bockberger with a huge viewing platform and a date sundial. Always on trail [1B] you also reach station 3 with a rotating star map. Continuing along this path, you reach the observatory (station 4) in Obergummer with a wonderful panorama. Here you also have the possibility to stop at the Untereggerhof Inn.
Continue along path [5] in the direction of the farm Tschigg and the Pluto planetary station. Cross the Tschiggermoor to reach the idyllically situated "Kaserer Bild" chapel. Here, turn right briefly via path [4]. Turn left at the Soluck car park and continue along the Steinegg Hiking Path [marked yellow shoe]. Cross the Streitmoos to the junction with path [6]. Turn right here and continue along path [6]. Keep left and turn right briefly via path [7] to reach the Spitzköfele viewing platform with station 5 (Polarstar as an orientation aid). Descend via trail [8A], then right on trail [8] to trail [2A]. Turn left here to the Rocket Tree House (Station 6). Take trail [2] to Steinegg | Collepietra.
