The cosy village of Anterivo, far away from hustle and bustle, extends at the border of the provinces of South Tyrol and the Trentino.
Located at 1,209 m asl, the small but mighty mountain village of Anterivo idyllically extends in the Monte Corno nature park. The municipality boasts some 390 inhabitants and includes a surface of 11 sqkm. Due to its geographic position at the border of the provinces of South Tyrol and the Trentino, the closest municipality in the neighbourhood is Capriana in Val di Fiemme, belonging to the Trentino.
“Antereu” was first mentioned in 1321, when the former judge “Gotschalk von Bozen” obtained the permission to establish ten farms in the county of Fiemme by the Counts of Tyrol. These farms layed the foundations for the village of Anterivo. Still today the ten fields on the municipal coat of arms refer to these happenings in the past.
Despite of its high altitude, Anterivo is positioned in a climatically favourable area, extending on a sun-oriented terrace. When hiking you can experience wetland areas, moors and meadows covered by a sea of flowers abloom. By the way, Anterivo is located in the Monte Corno nature park, which is the richest in species of South Tyrol. A plant that is particularly worth mentioning is the coffee plant of Anterivo, which is neither real coffee nor a coffee berry. The so-called Lupinus pilus is a coffee substitute, which used to be drunk mixed with barley or wheat.
If you love sports, you can either exercise on the tennis court, along the keep-fit trail or on your mountain bike. In winter, however, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing are the most popular leisure-time activities. Those who prefer skiing can easily reach the slopes of the ski carousel “Dolomiti Superski” snaking only a stone’s throw from the village.
Our tip: Visit the kneipp baths in the recreation area in the component locality of Sandegg. This is how you can best revive your exhausted feet after a hiking day in the Monte Corno nature park.
