Long Description:
Version in German language

Der Planetenwanderweg zeigt unser Planetensystem im Maßstab 1:4 Milliarden. Dies bedeutet: 1 Meter entspricht 4 Millionen Kilometer! Auf einer Länge von ca. 1500 Metern ist das Planetensystem in Größe und Entfernung richtig dargestellt. Die Benutzer (vor allem Schulklassen oder interessierte Gruppen) können die Größenverhältnisse im gesamten Planetenbereich - unserer kosmischen Heimat- anhand des Modells erlaufen. Das Modell ist innerhalb von 60 - 90 Minuten begehbar (inkl. Erläuterungen). Für Schulklassen genügt also eine Doppelstunde.

Der Weg beginnt an der Einmündung der Straße „Hintere Höhe" in die „Theodor-Heuss-Straße". Die Schaukästen stehen an der Straße zur Hinteren Höhe. Der Weg endet an der Einmündung des Siebensternwegs in die „Hintere Höhe".

Unterwegs im Sonnensystem - der Münchberger Planetenweg, Station Jupiter

Version in English language

Here is Jupiter provided.

The planetary path shows our planetary system at a scale of 1: 4 billion. This means: 1 meter equals 4 million kilometers! At a length of about 1500 meters, the planetary system is correctly represented in size and distance. The users (especially school classes or interested groups) can scale the proportions in the entire planetary realm - our cosmic homeland - based on the model. The model can be walked on within 60 - 90 minutes (including explanations). So for school classes, a double lesson is enough.

The trail begins at the junction of the "Hintere Höhe" road with the "Theodor-Heuss-Straße". The showcases are located on the road to the rear height. The path ends at the junction of the Siebensternweg in the "Hintere Höhe".

Enjoy your visit here!
