Not only nature at the Baita dei Minatori-Knopnbolt Höt and the Baita del Contadino, but traditions and legends that will make your holiday in Trentino unforgettable.
The history of Valle dei Mòcheni – Bersntol has origin in the Middle Ages, where the lords of the area sent their servants to work the lands.
However, it was around 1400 that German origin people, including the Moar family, as soon as they discovered the mineral richness of this territory, colonized it and began exploiting the rich deposits of iron, copper and silver. Bohemian workers arrived soon to explored the valley far and wide and became known as Canopi – Knopn, meaning “Miners”.
These populations remained in the Valley for a long time and, when the mineral deposits were exhausted, they became farmers and traders. They always firmly maintained their traditions and the bond with the territory, while traveling often, and thus a cultural island unique in the world with its own language was born..
In the surrounding of the Baita dei Minatori there are today numerous abandoned mining sites, testifying the activities of the Canopi; from here comes the name of the locality were is located the Chalet Knopnbolt (ie forest of the miners).
Orinigary builtet in the nineteenth century, the Chalet has always belonged to the Moar family. Originally it was used as cows recover during summer and hay storage, like the other huts in the area. The building was completely renovated in 1987 and used as Chaltet, to allow you to live a unique experience int the wild nature, few steps from the Erdemolo mine – Gruab va Hardimbl, where you can jump back yourself to 1500 and relive the experience of the miners.
