Excursions through South Tyrol
Experience culture & history
Grüß Gott, Buongiorno, Bon dì… from South Tyrol, the "Land in the Mountains" with its nature and moving history. Since the turn of the last century, the southern part of Tyrol has been the perfect example of alpine challenge. Be it rock or glacier tours of the highest technical difficulty, hikes in high altitudes or easy hikes over mountain passes and alpine pastures, no wish remains unfulfilled.
But South Tyrol is more… Amongst the most important cultural sights are the numerous castles and fortresses like Prösels Castle, small Roman churches, and unique evidence of Gothic art. Always worth a visit are the towns Bolzano, Bressanone and Merano with their north and south European history and tradition, which await you for a journey through culture and history or for enjoying the "dolce far niente". The capital of Bolzano with its remarkable old town, the Messner Mountain Museum and the Ötzi Museum, the spa town of Merano with the Sovereign Castle, beautiful parks and the botanic Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. Bressanone with the dome district, the Bishop's Castle, the bourgeois old town with its narrow streets and low alleyways, and the Novacella Convent are ideal for experiencing the atmosphere of the old bishop's town… or visit the most beautiful culture cities of northern Italy like Verona and Venice leaving from Fiè allo Sciliar. The most important alpine trade routes are the reason for the country's moving history, but also for some of the most important artistic sights. Numerous historic and cultural highlights await you!
