In the romantic capital Bozen and its picturesque neighbouring communes you will discover the multicultural side of South Tyrol. Here South meets North and the German and Italian population move closer together than anywhere else in South Tyrol. Cultures meet and create something unique and new. While on holidays in one of the beautiful hotels in Bozen and its surroundings, you can easily combine a city trip with a hiking vacation.
In Bozen not only cultures merge, but also alpine and Mediterranean landscapes: While vineyards and Mediterranean plants cover the city protectively in a green coat, the steep mountains of the Dolomites glow in the back. Also otherwise Bozen is a true melting pot: You will hear Italian next to German, see Spaghetti beside “Knödel” (=traditional Tyrolean dumplings) and tailor-made suit compete with the leather pants in shop windows. Lately, more and more exotic dishes and cultures mingle in the capital: A kebab stand neighbors a wok restaurant. Bozen is becoming increasingly international!
The gate to the Dolomites
From Bozen in South Tyrol you reach Seiser Alm in no time and with it the heart of the Dolomites: Rosengarten and the Langkofel range, but also Eggental with the famous ski area Obereggen and the legendary Karersee. Bozen is also the gate to the surrounding orchards and vineyards, which in spring time transform the entire valley into a sea of blossom. A modern cable-car brings visitors up to the plateau Ritten, one of the most beautiful living areas with the extraordinary natural phenomena of the Earth Pyramids. Those who enjoy historical trains, are advised to take a ride on the narrow railway connecting the center of Ritten with its different districts.
North of Bozen towards the saddle of Pens you will find the valley Sarntal. This valley is famous for its living traditions such as the art of pinfeather embroidery. After a narrow and curvy road the valley widens with its untouched nature, offering a multitude of hiking- and excursion possibilities.
