At the entrance of the scenic Val Ciamin valley at Tires al Catinaccio, the “Steger Säge” sawmill is a rare example of a water powered Venetian sawmill. The building was renovated some years ago and the sawmill is ready for use again. Exactly there, the visitor centre of the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park is accommodated. Plenty of information about flora and fauna, geology and traditions of handicrafts are shown, furthermore a bird call station and a film booth are offered.
Of course a part of the exhibition is devoted to the old Venetian sawmill. On a regular basis in summer time, a presentation of the sawmill is shown and the living quarters of the master sawyer are accessible which include also a room dedicated to the geology of the area.
A further information point is located at the parking space of the Fiè Pond. The wooden building provides information about the flora and fauna around the lake, in the reeds and in the surrounding wetlands. A special focus is set on the bird life in the nature park.
