On a sunny terrace of the Monzoccolo, high above the orographic left side of the Val d’Adige, there is the municipality of Verano, located only a stone’s throw from Avelengo and Meltina. Verano includes the villages of Eschio, Hinterkofl, Unterdorf and the Leadner alpine pasture, which are all located in idyllic position. Verano can be reached via funicular starting from Postal. Not only the panorama from the village is, however, impressive, but also the village itself offers several attractive sights.
The so-called Rotsein-, Beimstein- and Untersteinkogel are three rounded mountain tops that are unique in South Tyrol. Also worth seing are the hay roofs of the Spitzegger, Tötnmoar, Lagratter and Gfrar farmsteads, which are of Baiuvarii origins. The parish church of Verano dates back to the 14th century and boasts a neo-Gothic winged altar.
The area surrounding Verano offers a series of refreshing excursion destinations. The outstanding destination is, however, the so-called “Knottnkino”, which is a panoramic rock spur above the village. From this amazing spot of land you can enjoy a view on the entire Val d’Adige, the Penegal, the Dolomites, the Corno Bianco, the Val d’Ultimo, the Gruppo di Tessa, the valley basin of Merano and the Val Passiria.
