Passo dello Stelvio National Park and national park centre Lahnersäge

Stelvio National Park – Italy’s largest nature preservation area

Anybody who spends a holiday in the Val d'Ultimo should not miss the national park and the "Lahn Sawmill", its national park centre with its restored water-powered saw.

The National Park comprises parts of the regions of Lombardy, Trentino and South Tyrol. The Park is dominated by the Ortler mountain range with the famous Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfserjoch. The area extends all the way to Val d'Ultimo/Ultental in the East. The Park borders the Swiss National Park to the East and the Adamello Brenta Nature Park to the South.

The Park is also a great place if you are interested in rare plants and animal species, such as majestic ibexes and groundhogs. In the Stelvio National Park the bearded vulture or „lammergeier“ was also successfully reintroduced to the wild. The bearded vulture is a pure scavenger that has a wingspan of up to 3 meters. The National Park is one of the largest nature preservation areas in the Alps and 15,500 of the total 325,000 acres are located in Val d'Ultimo/Ultental.

In the centuries-old building, once a saw mill, one can still get a feel for how important the timber industry once was for the region. Today the new visitor centre, with its extensive and vividly displayed information on the area and on the Passo dello Stelvio national park, stands where the foresters once came in and out.
