A very particular building in the centre of Santa Maddalena in the Val di Funes valley houses the Puez-Odle visitor centre.
A cube-shaped, two-storied building made of papyrus coloured concrete in the village of Santa Maddalena in the Val di Funes valley houses the Puez-Odle visitor centre. It offers plenty of information about nature, geology and culture around the majestic Odle Group and Puez Group.
The exhibition areas are called “Dolomites, hands-on” (geology of the Dolomites), “Nature’s cabinet of wonders” (bird nests, feathers and antlers) and “Conquering the mountains” (alpinism). In a short film the famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner, who was born in the Val di Funes valley, reports about his experiences in the mountains.
A Mountain Cinema offers special programs of selected nature park film productions, whereas an aerial walkable photograph provides an overview of the Puez-Odle Nature Park. However, in Daksy’s Kids’ Workshop, the little guests can explore nature playfully with the mascot Daksy, the smart badger. Delightful surprises wait for them!
