The Planet Path (Planetstien)
Hop on the bike or enjoy a walk on The Planet Path in the scenic area along Horsens Fjord and experience the solar system unfold on the 3 kilometres from Høegh Guldbergs Gade to The Fishing House near Boller Castle.
A walk through the solar system
Get an exciting insight into the solar system's huge distances illustrated beautifully on the road to Boller Forest in scale 1:1498 million. The Planet Path starts at Høegh Guldbergs Gade, where the sun is represented as a large gold-plated iron ball on a 2.8-metre-high stand. From there you can take the trip along the fjord with all 8 planets from Mercury to Neptune – illustrated on large natural stones with information about each planet. You can also read the information boards set up, where the path starts and ends.
