project nightflight Designs Star Walk InstallationIn 2014, project nightflight opened the first permanent star walk installation worldwide. The Grossmugl Star Walk is a self-guided tour encouraging astronomical observations with the unaided eye. Nine displays along the trail explain general astronomical topics in an easy-to-read way. On a 90 minutes' walk, visitors learn how to spot star colors, artificial satellites, the Milky Way and other objects in the night sky. The 1.5-km-long tour is free of charge, open all year round day and night and available without booking or reservation. The "Sternenweg Großmugl" was designed by project nightflight and built in close collaboration with the municipality of Grossmugl, Austria.The Grossmugl Star Walk was officially opened on May 24th, 2014. About 100 visitors from neighbouring villages and Vienna came to participate in the inaugural walk despite of storm clouds looming on the horizon in all directions. Since the opening, nature lovers, stargazers and people just taking a stroll can be found walking the path, especially during the summer months. The news about the Star Walk was well covered by local print and online media, with the publication of articles still ongoing.
