Anterivo in the Monte Corno Nature Park

Anterivo is a small village south of Bolzano close to the Monte Corno Nature Park and all its natural beauties. The village was founded in the Middle Ages, starting from a bulk of ten farmhouses, and today it has developed into a paradise for hikers and cross-country skiers.

Anterivo: what to do in summer and in winter

Thanks to its position, Anterivo is favored by a mild climate and thus welcomes tourists in every season. The nature reserve Monte Corno Nature Park features a range of animal and plant species that will make the joy of all nature lovers, and with its 400 km hiking trails (the European Walking Route E5 crosses this territory) and 900 km mountain biking trails the reserve is perfect also for sportsmen.

In winter the snow-covered meadows and forests turn Anterivo into a charming and romantic resort, tempting you into snowshoeing and cross-country skiing tours. If you are more into downhill skiing, the near slopes of the Dolomiti Superski are exactly what you are looking for. Anterivo features also an outdoor Kneipp path just outside the village, on the Sandegg hill.

Anterivo Lupin Slow Food Presidium

The local speciality is Anterivo coffee, a coffee substitute made from a particular type of lupin cultivated for decades by the local population and now a Slow Food Presidium. Lupin cultivation in Anterivo was widespread until the 1960s, but with the increased availability and accessibility of coffee, the daily use of its infusion almost disappeared. Some farmers in the village continued to cultivate this variety with dedication in their gardens, preserving the seed to this day. In the early 2000s, a recovery project was launched, thanks to the research work of the 'Laimburg Agricultural Experimentation Centre' and the commitment of a group of Anterivo farmers who formed an association to produce 'coffee' from lupins grown - without the use of chemicals - in small vegetable gardens. The Presidium aims to promote the production of this particular product.
