We strongly recommend reserving rooms well in advanced! Go to booking request »
If you have already booked ahead, you should confirm your reservation again in March or April. The meeting takes place in two areas: The Sattleggers Alpenhof parking lot and the nearby meadows. The parking lot is more of a social center and meeting point due to potential light interference from car headlights of latecomers. The meadows are perfect for astro-photographers due to their lack of light pollution and presence of electric outlets (230V). They are also of course perfect for those who want to observe the sky undisturbed.
Please try to arrive on the pasture during daylight hours. At the reception booth, you can pay your registration fee and receive tips for optimal viewing positioning and a meeting schedule.
Camping in the meadows is once again allowed this year!
Per person € 6.-
Per car € 7.-
Per RV, bus or tent € 12.-
If you arrive at night, a small reception area will be open. The meeting area (parking lot) will be fenced off for security reasons as well as to avoid light pollution from the road. After passing the signpost (about 30m before the site) please proceed with low-beam lights! The following day, after a visit our information booth, you can choose your final installation location.
