The entire universe you can find in the small village of San Valentino in Campo, a district of the municipality of Cornedo. Here the Planetarium South Tyrol - "Planetarium Südtirol" in German, "Planetario Alto Adige" in Italian - was opened in 2013. It simulates the cosmos and offers a true-to-life view on the secrets of the sky and the universe from comfortable armchairs, regardless of the weather. In the following years, it was managed by the municipality of Cornedo in consultation with the Province of South Tyrol, but in December 2020 it was put under the management of the Provincial Museums - specifically the South Tyrol Museum of Nature.
Various films, also with focus on children, tell of gravity and expeditions into space, of the earth and of distant worlds. The planetarium, equipped with the latest technology, is entirely dedicated to astronomy and science. Furthermore it represents a popular and instructive destination for school classes, offering workshops on Comet Kitchen, Cloud Chamber and Chemical Rocket.
On the sunny high plateau of San Valentino in Campo (Gummer), just above the planetarium, the Max Valier Observatory is located. Astronomitaly has already described the sky above San Valentino in Campo, far away from the many light sources, as the "most beautiful night sky". Together with the Solar Observatory and the Planetary Trail, San Valentino in Campo has been named the First European Star Village. And how to reach the Planetarium South Tyrol? The facility has a large car park and an adjacent bus stop (line 182 from Bolzano).
