The natural spectacle of the rock

Enjoy scenic natural attractions for all ages: The Knottnkino viewpoint on the Tschögglberg mountain

The Knottnkino viewpoint motto is: Take a seat, sit back and enjoy. At this gorgeous viewpoint, it is easy to figure out who the real star is. In case you were curious, "Knottn" means rock in the South Tyrolean dialect. “Kino” means theatre, referring to the 30 cinema-style seats situated on a rocky ledge. They are made of steel and chestnut wood and were designed by the artist Franz Messner from Ritten/Renon. From these box seats, the whole family can enjoy the unique views over the entire Etschtal valley, from the peaks of the Texelgruppe range to the Gantkofel, Penegal and Weisshorn mountains. 

There are also various hiking trails around this popular vantage point on the high plateau of Hafling/Avelengo, Vöran/Verano and Meran/Merano 2000. The new Knottnkino³ circular tour is particularly impressive. It leads from the Burgstall-Vöran cable car to the three rocky "Rotstein Knott," "Beimstein Knott," and "Timpfler Knott" outcroppings. The rock formations of wine-red porphyry rock are unique in South Tyrol. Along the way, artist-designed rest areas invite you to sit back and relax.

Hikes to the Knottnkino viewpoint

You can reach the spectacular open-air cinema on the Hafling high plateau via various hiking trails. We recommend taking the Knottnkino³ themed hike, which leads from Vöran through the forest and over flowering Alpine meadows to three magnificent viewpoints. 

Want even more?

The charming spa town of Meran is not far from the Knottnkino viewpoint, and there are plenty of nature-oriented summer hikes, rustic huts and modern lifts that will take you right to the very heart of your favourite hiking area in South Tyrol.
