The Beimstein Knott is one of three tuff knolls. These three tuff knolls are of volcanic origin and are unparalleled in South Tyrol. Additionally is impressive for its stunning view overlooking the village of Vöran.

On the red rock is placed a new installation, called “Attimo” installation. It is comprised of five chairlift seats placed in a row, representing an imaginary chairlift.

Author’s recommendation

From May 2019 the new circular hike "Knottnkino³" collects the three tuff knolls Rotstein, Beimstein and Rotstein Knott.
