The Knottnkino in Verano

The open-air cinema at the Avelengo, Verano and Merano 2000 mountain plateau

On Rotsteinkogel mountain, between the villages of Avelengo/Hafling and Verano/Vöran, lies the Knottnkino of South Tyrolean artist Franz Messner. The vantage point, with 30 cinema seats made from steel and chestnut wood, invites hikers to sit, reflect and enjoy the unique view as if in a natural theater.

The view from the Knottnkino in Verano overlooks the entire Val d’Adige/Etschtal Valley, and visitors can enjoy stunning views from the peaks of the Texelgruppe Nature Park up to the Gantkofel mountain, from the Penegal mountain and further to the Weißhorn mountain.
