Breathtaking landscapes, mild sunny climate, a moving history at the crossroads of two cultures, outstanding hospitality and cuisine, living traditions in crafts, music, art and architecture – Alto Adige, also known as South Tyrol, impresses with its diversity and the unique mix of alpine traditions and Mediterranean flair. Italy’s northernmost province lies on the Alps’ south side and is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. The majestic mountain world of the Dolomites, lush meadows of Europe’s highest mountain pasture, mellow lakeside vineyards, the region’s lively capital Bozen with its Italian flair, or the chic resort town of Merano – it is first and foremost the landscapes that make Alto Adige so attractive. In spring one is amazed by the blossoming apple trees, in summer the region turns into a hiking paradise, in autumn it lures with the rich harvest of wine grapes and chestnuts, and in winter it’s a dream destination for skiers and lovers of fairytale-like snowy landscapes.
