Wunderhorn is located in the historic center of Civezzano, in Valsugana. A strategic position from which to start discovering Trentino in all seasons, between cultural beauties and numerous outdoor activities.
A few steps from the house, near the square, are the café, the supermarket, where it is also possible to buy typical products of the area, the pharmacy, the ancient church from the 1500s and the playground for the little ones.

For mountain lovers, the great expanse of Lagorai offers paths for all levels, with routes that also wind along the defense line of the First World War (Path of Peace), between fortifications, pastures and huts. Of particular beauty, the Val dei Mocheni – Bernstol a few km by car. An enchanted valley, dotted with farmsteads and huts. We recommend the excursion to Lake Erdemolo (2040 m) and Rifugio Sette Selle and a visit to Maso Filzerhof.
The Pinè plateau, with its two lakes, offers walks, horseback riding or mountain biking. Suggestive routes wind around Lake Levico and Lake Santa Colomba, surrounded by Scots pine woods. Numerous paths start from here, such as the Sentiero dei Canopi, medieval silver miners. The wonders of Arte Sella are 40 km away.
LAKES AND SPAS
Wunderhorn is surrounded by an area dotted with lakes, which can be reached in a maximum of 30 minutes by car. From the idyllic small Santa Colomba Lake to the large Caldonazzo Lake and Levico Lake, both suitable for swimming, where in the warmer months it is possible to rent sailboats, kayaks, canoes and skates. In Levico Terme there is also the historic spa center of the early twentieth century, where it is possible to carry out both medical treatments (baths – muds – aerosols) and wellness treatments.
The Merano Thermal Baths are an hour’s drive away.
Wunderhorn is located at the mouth of the Valsugana, a real paradise for bicycle lovers. A long cycle path starts from Pergine and winds along the Brenta river for 52 kilometres. High-altitude bike lovers will find satisfaction among the routes of varying difficulty of the Lagorai and the Pinè plateau. The cycle paths also start from Trento which, among the vineyards of the Adige Valley, lead to Rovereto to the south and to Mezzocorona to the north.

In Civezzano, overlooking the square, stands the Church of S.M. Assunta, one of the oldest churches in Trentino. Inside there is a valuable organ dating back to the seventeenth century. We also point out Castel Telvana and the Fort of the Great War. Wunderhorn is also only 7 km from Trento, a city with a fascinating center full of history. The Castello del Buonconsiglio, Piazza Duomo and the Muse – Museum of Science, also for the little ones, are worth a visit. Rovereto, home of the Mart, is 35 km to the south. Bolzano 60 km to the north.
SKI AND OUTDOOR WINTER
By car you can reach several ski resorts. The Bondone and Paganella lifts, with a view of the Brenta Dolomites. Those of Folgaria or the famous consortia of Val di Fiemme and Fassa, reachable in 45 minutes by car.
For those who love snowshoeing, routes of varying difficulty are available, with the possibility, in some cases, of sledging. For lovers of cross-country skiing, the Viote slopes and those of Bedollo on the Pinè plateau are worth mentioning.
Nature, relaxation and good food. Town festivals and celebrations are suggestive opportunities to try the Trentino food and wine tradition. There are many wine cellars scattered throughout the area and along the Trentino Wine and Flavors Route. Among huts and shelters it will be possible to taste the typical dairy products.
Here is a selection of restaurants that can be reached by car for a tasty lunch, aperitif or dinner: Locanda 2 Camini, Osteria Storica Morelli, Casa del Vino della Vallagarina, Trattoria Al Parol, La Gnoccata, Apicoltura Gocce d’Oro, Ristorante Pizzeria Europa, Al Pescatore, Veg Point, Kaiserbins Hutte.
