A cinema that is run entirely without electricity. Instead, it offers a spectacular view across the Merano valley basin. Easy to reach and perfect for a longer stay.

Have you thought about going to the cinema while on holiday? This is one film you should definitely not miss out on! The folding seats are set up in rows, just like in a regular movie theatre, but if you expect to be looking at a big screen, you’re mistaken. At the open-air Knottnkino located on Rotsteinkogel mountain by Verano, 1,417 metres above sea level, Mother Nature takes on the role of the director, and the blockbuster ‘movie’ is the breath-taking view of the mountains and the Merano basin. This special cinema is open come rain or shine and can be reached via different long and short hiking trails.
