In Vipiteno you can stroll past beautiful town houses and marvel at the typical bay windows all year round. We recommend visiting the impressive churches, the town hall with the Gothic council hall, the Deutschordens house and the Multscher and town museum.

Unforgettable: a day in Bolzano
Our provincial capital Bozen. Worth exploring.
What makes Bolzano so special? A unique mix of south and north. In Bolzano, the Mediterranean Sea and the Alps meet and become an irresistible combination. Different architectural styles – from colorful and soft to imposing and edgy. The arcades in the shopping mile and the fruit market are a perfect starting point for exploring the city. On foot, by bike or by public transport, Bolzano always shows its most beautiful side. In the Ötzi museum you can learn a lot of interesting facts about the glacier mummy. The surroundings with wineries, the Kohlern oasis of calm and the Rittner high plateau are also on our list of recommended places to visit.
In the valley Pustertal

The Stadtgasse in Bruneck is one of the most beautiful shopping streets in South Tyrol. But shopping isn't the only reason for a trip to the valley Pustertal. The city is a feast for the eyes: a wide valley basin surrounded by high mountains. Mentioned in a document since 1256 and soon the economic center of the valley in the Middle Ages. Meanwhile also known for events, culture and numerous sporting activities.
Air and garden
The spa town of Merano. Made famous by Empress Sissi.
In the 19th century, the therapeutic effectiveness of the air in Meran was discovered and soon the first guests arrived. In search of healing. And when the Austrian Empress Sissi came on vacation, the European aristocracy and the bourgeoisie could no longer be kept away from Meran. The magnificent buildings that were built back then can still be admired today. Meran is also known as a garden city.
