Valle Aurina - Ahrntal, Province of Bolzano, Trentino Alto Adige, Italy. The comune includes the rear section of the valley of the Aurina Valley, in Val Pusteria, the northernmost valley in Italy, crossed by the Ahr river. There is no inhabited centre whose name is "Valle Aurina", but a number of villages, with the townhall located at Steinhaus (Cadipietra). Almost all the population are Native German speakers. In the Valley you find the skiing facilities of Klausberg at Cadipietra and the Speikboden (Michlreis) near Lutago.

Important archaeological finds of prehistoric moorland were found in Rio Bianco (Weienbach), at Schillberg-Goge in 2007. The name was mentioned as "vallis quae dicitur Aurina" in 1048.


  • The parish church of San Giovanni (St. Johann), the spiritual center of the valley, built by Joseph Abenthung, a Tyrolean architect of the 18th century.
