Explore our cosmic home in 90 minutes through space. The Planetenwanderweg trail between Ehrenfriedersdorf and Drebach is a stellar route for a walk. Following it gives you a realistic idea of the relative distances and proportions of our solar system.
Depicted on a scale of 1:1 billion, the sun appears as a ball with a diameter of 1.4 m, while the dwarf planet Pluto is a mere 0.3 cm. All the planets are represented in the correct dimensions, and the distances also correspond to the scale. The route offers you a great view of the Greifenstein area and the Erzgebirgskamm ridge. Start your tour at the sun in Ehrenfriedersdorf or at Pluto at the Zeiss Planetarium in Drebach.
