Nature Park Visitor Center
The motto of Rieserferner-Ahrn / Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park Visitor Center is “The boundaries of nature, the limits of human kind.” When you first enter the center, a film shot from the perspective of an eagle affords you an unusual impression of the park.
A 3D relief provides visitors with multimedia information concerning the park’s mountains, trails, refuges, lakes and waterfalls. A pendulum gives visitors a close-up look at how the mountains arose, while a kind of stone puzzle provides insight into the geological structure of the mountains. At the center you can also marvel at, observe, and be amazed by altitudes of 3,000 meters and beyond, glacier shrinkage, minerals, life-size hand-carved birds of prey, resilient lichen, and the valley’s typical dialect. Visitor information systems provide information concerning nature, the landscape, and the evolution of the nature park region. And for kids there are fairy tales and legends from times past.
Visitors to Rieserferner-Ahrn / Vedrette di Ries-Aurina Nature Park Visitor Center experience spatially and temporally all of the beauty and boundaries that are found in the park.
