Bolzano and environs

While winter weather often still prevails in our home regions, the most beautiful time of the year is already starting in Bolzano and environs: millions of apple trees transform the landscape into a spring-like dream of blossoms. From the palm groves that flourish around Lake Kaltern on the South Tyrolean Wine Road to the highest peaks of the Sarntal Alps and the nearby Dolomites – the region presents itself as a Mediterranean holiday destination with plenty of Alpine charm.

In and around the capital of South Tyrol

The city of Bolzano (Bozen) is just as diverse as the region that surrounds it. The cityscape is characterised by Mediterranean palm and cypress gardens, while at the same time the Rosengarten massif, glowing in the evening sun, rises in the background. Romantic leafy alleys, elegant boutiques, artistic facades and extraordinary cultural offerings – find all this and much more in Bolzano. Of course, the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology is also worth a visit, where the over 5,000-year-old glacier mummy Ötzi and his findings are on display.

Active throughout the year

At night it's still freezing cold, but as soon as the first rays of sunshine fall on Bolzano and environs in the morning, it's time for outdoor sports enthusiasts to get going. When you leave the city, you immediately find yourself in a unique natural landscape with numerous promenades that invite you to take a walk. Whether in the sunny Überetsch or on the south-facing high plateaus on the Ritten, Salten and Regglberg: here you will find pleasant temperatures and the best conditions to get fit for the coming season.
