On this tour we reach the Rotsteinkogel and are allowed to take a seat in the "Knottnkino". There we enjoy the view of the surrounding landscape.

We start our tour in Merano, cycle to Burgstall and first take the cable car to Vöran. We then cycle up the Rotsteinkogel to the "Knottnkino". The "Knottnkino" is a very specially designed vantage point at an altitude of 1465 m and was created by the artist Franz Messner in 2000. It comprises 30 folding chairs made of steel and chestnut wood, from which we can enjoy the landscape and have a view of the Etsch Valley and Merano Basin. "Knottn" means "rock" in South Tyrol. Furthermore, we pass St. Kathrein, a small district of Hafling. There we should make a detour to the romantic St. Kathrein church. The church contains a Gothic apse and frescoes from the 14th century. In the midst of nature, we finally return to Merano.
