About

A vacation in South Tyrol combines nature and pleasure, is both alpine and Mediterranean and harmoniously combines cultural contrasts. Here, tradition and down-to-earthness meet casual openness - at any time of year, vacationers are warmly welcomed and can experience relaxation, adventure and culture. The different languages that meet in South Tyrol are not the only contrasts. While the Dolomites region is known for its mountain activities and is a true paradise for alpine lovers, the south of the country offers a warmer climate, excellent wine, a flatter landscape and the capital city of Bolzano. The Valle Isarco offers hikes at different altitudes, on various themes and leads through medieval towns as well as along pleasure trails.

The contrasts of South Tyrol are most noticeable in the Merano region: Merano is nestled between palm trees and the three-thousand-meter peaks of the Texelgruppe Nature Park, while the west is home to the cultural region of Vinschgau and the highest mountain in South Tyrol, the "King Ortler". Whatever your heart beats for, you are sure to find it in South Tyrol. Variety awaits everywhere and makes for an unforgettable vacation.
