Bolzano: culture, tradition and sights

Bolzano, the capital city of South Tyrol, has a broad of cultural sights and it combines the modern city life with traditional charm.

Especially in spring time the traditional flower market at the Piazza Walther well worth seeing and the Castle Mareccio envites you to a wine tasting (you reach both places within 10 minutes).

Refresh yourself in summer in the public swimming pool of Bolzano or go on a shopping tour at the city centre. Here you can find lots of different shops and comfy cafés.

One of the highlight in the advent season are the Christmas markets in Bolzano where the visitor enjoy hot wine punch and delicious Christmas cookies.

Our recommendation for bad weather activities:

  • visit the iceman “Ötzi” at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology
  • the beautiful Runkelstein Castle
  • the new Museion with modern and contemporary art
  • the Messner Mountain Museum (of the famous mountain climber Reinhold Messner)
