LEVICO SPA PARK
The Park was planned by the Berliner gardener Giorgio Zill.
The “Berliner Society”, to which the spa management had been entrusted, inaugurated it at the beginning of the 1900 with the Grand Hotel Terme, the bottling establishment and the bath one. Thanks to its position, close to the lake, which is an excellent climate “moderator”, in the park live many local and exotic animals.
In the summer period, besides the naturalistic excursions with the guides, there are musical meetings and art exhibitions too. www.dolomiti.it

RONCEGNO SPA PARK
The Roncegno Spa Park, with its 50,000 square metres of chestnut trees and conifers, surrounds the historical spa centre in Liberty style.
Woods, meadows, snowy peaks and lively streams draw visitors’ attention immediately. However, there are less known areas, which don’t seem important at first glance, that are actually flagships for the Trentino Region. They are the biotopes: small and big areas protected by the law 23 June 1986 n.14 of the Autonomous Province of Trento.
The word biotope comes from the Greek bios=’life or organism’ and topos=’place’ and it is used to indicate areas which are particularly relevant as regards their natural environment.
There are 287 biotopes in the census and 68 out of 287 are particularly important.
In some of these areas you can find paths to ease the itinerary without damaging their animal and plant species.
They are wet areas and identified by the types:
- ‘Canneto’ (cane thicket) (Canneto di Levico and Canneti di S.Cristoforo, the former close to Levico Lake, the latter close to Caldonazzo Lake);
- ‘Canneto e Bosco ripariale’ (cane thicket and dead wood) (Inghiaie, in the valley bottom South of Levico);
- ‘Torbiera’ (peat bog) (Pudro Lake, among the bumps West of Pergine).
Lovers of birdwatching can see a great variety of species by the lake and you can also discover a great range of plants, both traditional and rare (such as some carnivorous plants).
Every Thursday, from June to September, you can visit the Biotopes ‘Canneto S.Cristoforo’ and ‘Inghiaie’ accompanied by a guide, thanks to ‘Settegiorni nel verde’ (Seven days in ‘green’).
