Churches such as the St. Kathrein Kirche church
, the Pfarrkirche St. Nikolaus parish church in Verano/Vöran, and the Pfarrkirche St. Johann parish church in Avelengo/Hafling, provide an interesting insight into local history. Mountain churches
such as the St. Oswaldkapelle
chapel or the St. Jakobskapelle chapel testify to the history of settlement on the Tschögglberg and Salten mountain plateaus. Visible traces of the past range from early medieval chapels to Gothic churches.
Also worth visiting is the Knottnkino
viewing platform on the Rotstein Knott mountain above Verano, where nature is presented as a special kind of cinema. The newly-opened Knottnkino³ circular trail
connects the three red porphyry rocks and leads to the three panoramic landmarks of Verano: the Rotstein, Beimstein and Timpfler Knott. Fans of modern architecture and design should not miss the Merano 2000 Cable Car
