Aargauer Planetenweg

Take a walk from Aarau to Safenwil and realize how small and at the same time how magnificent our planet earth is! The size of the planets and the distances between them are demonstrated by models placed along the path through the woods.
After a short walk from the start in Aarau you reach the majestic linden tree (the «Echolinde») where you have a good view over the city and the surroundings. At a short distance the large model of the sun marks the beginning of the path. Shortly afterwards you'll pass the inner planets, Mercury and Venus. 1 meter of your way equals the distance of 1 million kilometers in space.

If you are accompanied by children you might want to turn from the line of planets after the Jupiter model and head towards the wildlife park Roggenhausen. Or you can follow the path and find picnic areas and ponds in the Kölliker Grossmoos.

About 6 km from the sun you'll reach a model of the tiny planet Pluto, the outpost of our solar system. You can follow the path to the railway station of Safenwil.
