9.00 pm: Small regional aperitif, welcome & program presentation of “Vent Unplugged
What is Vent unplugged?
Escape from everyday life brimming with excessive information, hectic pace and constant impressions, wind down and get involved with what your own body and the Alpine environment have to offer. Vent unplugged meets this yearning from 02 to 05 September 2021. Places of strength and special offers for outdoor exercise, enjoyment and regional cuisine, music and stargazing in the open air - all of this enjoyed on a compact weekend amidst peace and unspoilt nature beyond 1900 meters above sea level.
11.00 am: Moving Alpine Meadow
Mountain activities do not just include hiking. We move in the fresh Alpine air and do a wide variety of exercises. You can look forward to a blend of agility and strengthening exercises. From the tip of your toe to your head, all parts of the body are focused and activated. A flow will be composed of the individual movements and everyone can take something home. All you need is motivation, curiosity and comfy workout clothes.
1.00 pm: Vent in Motion
Blackroll training, mobility flow, kort.x training? Especially if you can't do anything with these "modern terms", you should take part in "Vent in Motion"! It's simply about trying something new by using small aids (such as a fascia roller or a mini power band) to combine movement with fun and joy. Be there and let yourself be surprised by loads of new challenges, heaps of fun and a moving overall experience in Vent!
3.00 pm: Do-it-yourself regional cuisine (slow food)
This is the unique taste of homemade treats! Together with Pirmin Lechner, host & kitchen chef at Hotel macun in Vent, you will learn - in the open air - how easy it is to serve authentic, delicious and regional Ötztal dishes. There are hearty “Kasnocken” cheese dumplings and for those with a sweet tooth, “Buchteln” yeast pastry served with a creamy vanilla sauce.
9.00 pm: Lecture in German: “Helle Not” by Stefanie Suchy ...
Artificial light, night and starry sky ...
Then as now, artificial light attracts attention and suggests both prosperity and progress. We can work and enjoy leisure activities around the clock. But where there is light, there is also shadow, as we know. Constantly increasing artificial light by night not only changes the day and night rhythm of people, but also has an impact on the living conditions of many animals and plants. While the natural night landscape amazes with the interplay of dark landscape and overwhelming starry sky, artificial beams of light from cities make the natural landscape fade. Stefanie Suchy lectures on the dark side of light and also provides a list of how to use artificial light in a responsible way.
3.30 am: Guided sunrise tour to Wilder Mann
Towards the (morning) sun ...
At the latest, when the first sun rays will timidly glimpse the mountain peaks, it is obvious that getting up early and hiking through the dark night was worth it. A guided mountain tour at sunrise is a very special experience, offering unique views and far-reaching vistas, and it makes the heart of every mountain lover shine. By the way, one-of-a-kind photos are guaranteed. Definitely a spectacle for all your senses.
5.00 pm: Evening Yoga
End the day with a yoga hour in a relaxed and calming way. With gentle exercises for body and mind as well as breathing techniques, you will learn how to prepare your body for a restful night after an eventful day. You will perfectly regenerate and review the day.
In the evening candlelight dinner at Vent's traditional inns
9.00 pm: “Abenteuer Sternenhimmel” by Johann Müller
An observation night with a difference…
Humans have always been fascinated by the universe with its myriad of celestial bodies. How far from mother earth is the nearest star? Why do comets have a tail? Why is the “Milky Way” called the “Milky Way”? On this evening we will dive into the mysterious depths of the universe. After an introductory lecture, we will explore the night sky with eyes, binoculars and astronomical telescopes, and with a little luck we will admire Jupiter with its moons and Saturn with its unique ring system.
Free on call taxis are available for the return journey on Saturday evening between 10.00 pm and midnight. More details are available at all participating inns and at the “Starry Sky Adventure” lecture.
8.30 am: Relaxing Start of the Day
Starting the day with yoga is an unrivaled treat for body and mind. A yoga morning session for beginners and advanced yogis, that will wake you up and revive your spirit. Give yourself some time and start the day full of energy and zest for action.
