Waltherplatz in BozenPhoto: Tappeiner AG
A city walk through the streets of the old trading town of Bolzano
The starting point is the Waltherplatz, which was laid out by King Maximilian Joseph I of Bavaria in 1808, 200 years ago. Since 1901, the square has been dedicated to the minnesinger Walther von der Vogelweide and bears a marble statue of the singer. Right next to it is the Dom, which holds several special features and secrets both outside and inside. The newly built cathedral treasury is also worth a visit. Only about 100 metres north of the cathedral is the Walther Monument, one of Bolzano's most popular motifs. Goethestraße leads to the colourful and centuries-old fruit market. To the north begins Franziskanergasse, which leads to the church of the same name (with its tranquil cloister and valuable Klocker altar). After this detour we go back a few steps and turn left into Dr.Streiter- Gasse; worth seeing here are the old marble fish tanks as well as some pointed arches above the alley. At the end we turn left into Bindergasse, which is known for its wrought-iron inn signs.
