The collections of the Bolzano Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and the Benedictine Monastery of Marienberg are well worth a visit.

Castles & churches

Throning high upon a rock, often in remote locations, the 800 castles and palaces of South Tyrol are truly impressive sights. Their palatial splendour was meant to impress and served military as well as representational purposes. They still bear witness to the prosperity and flourishing culture of South Tyrol.

Pulsating flair. Strolling & shopping in South Tyrol’s cities and towns.

They all come with their own inimitable flair, from the region’s capital of Bolzano to historic villages in sunny locations such as Schenna and are just waiting to be explored and discovered.
