The Rittner Horn (Italian: Corno del Renon; German: Rittner Horn) is a mountain in South Tyrol/Alto Adige, Italy. The mountain is located in the Sarntaler Alpen on the Bozner Quarzporphyrplatte. As there is no higher summit blocking the view, the Rittner Horn is a marvelous lookout offering views from the Großglockner (Österreich), the Dolomites to the Ortler-Alps. On the summit there is the Rittner-Horn-Haus of the CAI.
