Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch

Excursion to the Knottnkino
A hike to the best “cinema” in South Tyrol

The outdoor movie theatre is at the top of Rotsteinkogel, high above the Merano Valley Basin: there is free entrance, nobody munching popcorn loudly next to you, and no screen. There is, however, around-the-clock programming featuring constantly shifting, weather-dependent gradations, and fantastic views over the Val d’Adige/Etschtal.

The word Knott means rock in South Tyrol: the “cinema” on the Knotten is made of 40 chairs mounted to the ground under the stars. In one of the armchairs, you can watch - depending on how tempestuous the weather is - the stunning scenery of the outdoor theatre until the sun finally sets.
