Venet Star Gazing Park

On the 2,512 m high Venet above Zams and Landeck, there is an observatory for star and sun observations.

The elevation near Zams in the Upper Inn Valley is Mt. Venet: It is known as a pleasure mountain in summer and a skiing area in winter, and offers a special attraction in addition to the mountain carts at the summit. Here you can gaze at the stars, surrounded by the silence of nature and without disturbing artificial light sources in the evening.

The Venet Cable Car takes you comfortably to the top station, and then it's only a few metres to the Venet Star Gazing Park (Sternenpark Venet), the only publicly accessible observatory in Tyrol. Now it offers also special winter tours in addition to the guided tours in summer.

A look through the telescope shows you the magnificent night sky above Tyrol and, when observing the sun, its impressive gas masses. If you want to enjoy the mountain experience for longer, you can spend the night at the Venet Mountain Hut (2,212 m a.s.l.).
