Miscellaneous Information

We strongly recommend reserving your rooms well in advance! Send us your reservation request here »

If you have already booked early, we suggest that you confirm your booking in March/April. The event is centered on two main locations: one is the car park at Sattleggers Alpenhof and the other is out in the meadows. The car park is very much the “social” center, not least because there is a slight degree of light annoyance caused by people arriving late. The meadows, however, are perfect for astro-photographers. No lights or power (230V) is available. That said, perfect for everyone who wants to stargaze without interruption.

Please do your best to arrive at our Alm during the daytime. The info stand will be staffed, providing you with useful tips on how best to set up your equipment as well as full program details. This is also where you will be able to pay your participation fee.

Once again this year, camping will be permitted on one of the meadows!
€ 8 per person
€ 9 per car
€ 14 per RV, bus or tent

If you happen to arrive during the nighttime hours, a small reception area will be provided. However, for safety reasons and to avoid light disturbance, the main grounds will be blocked to traffic. As soon as you reach the signs (approximately 30 m from the grounds), please drive with parking lights only! The next day, after visiting our info stand, you will be able to move into your actual designated site.

We are happy to provide you with additional information under the following address: www.embergeralm.info

We look forward to a successful Telescope Meeting with you here in Carinthia!
