We came across the planet walk sculptures completely by accident when we noticed them scattered around along part of our walking route. The sculptures are all within a few steps from the path. Every sculpture (planet) is well signposted and explained on plaques. There is...More

We are a keen walking family, but despite that, this made our walk even better. It gives you an idea of the immense scale of the universe- it is mind-boggling really. We did try to find Pluto and were disappointed not to, but we did...More

Wheelchair accessible on the main path for first 30 minutes and return makes an enjoyable 1 hour stroll. Stunning views of the mountains. Display of the planets are not accessible however, being in the high mountains make up for it.

We rode our bikes on this trail to Zinal Glacier wanderweg. Mostly an easy grade with some steeper pitches. Awesome views. Exposed to weather so check forcast and dress appropriately.

The walk is flat and easy from the sun until Uranus. The rest of the path was still covered by snow in June so we went down back to Saint-Luc after Uranus. You can download information on the planets from the "sentier des planetes" web-site...More

Easy access via funicular. Lovely and easy walk, you can do as much as you want at your own pace. We have dome two different lengths according to conditions and have enjoyed stunning vistas both times.
