Monte Corno/Trudner Horn Nature Reserve
The Monte Corno/Trudner Horn Nature Reserve comprises an area of around 6,849 hectares (16,366 acres). It is located in the very south of South Tyrol and encompasses the municipalities of Altria/Altrei, Ora/Auer and Salorno/Salurn.
The Monte Corno/Trudner Horn Nature Reserve is named after the 1817 metre-high Monte Corno/Trudner Horn summit. Among South Tyrol’s nature reserves it boasts the widest variety of flora and fauna due to its sub-Mediterranean climate. The Monte Corno/Trudner Horn Nature Reserve Visitor Centre is accommodated in an old electric corn mill in the village of Trodena/Truden. The three storey-high building has been completely renovated and the mill is once again in perfect working order. The grounds of the visitor centre contain a pond with amphibians, a herb garden and a small cornfield.
