Trips

You have to see it for yourself!

The altitude of 1,236 m above sea level makes of Ortisei the ideal place for winter and summer holidays. This town, with its old and solid mercantile tradition and rich history, has a particular urban plan that blends harmoniously with the landscape. The centre and its pedestrian only area are a wonderful meeting place but are also ideal for shopping. From here one may easily wander off into the woods in search of some old farm. The Seceda and the Alpe di Siusi can be reached by comfortable lifts.

The medieval city Chiusa/Klausen, which is surpassed in height by the mighty Säben/Sabiona monastery mountain, proudly calls itself the "City of Dürer." Here, where the city was the scene of intense artistic activity just a hundred years ago is where Albrecht Dürer stopped during his journey through Italy. He exploited his portrait of the city as a background for an allegorical copper-plate engraving titled "Das Grosse Glück" ("Nemesis"). Today, Klausen/Chiusa is still numbered among the most beautiful of Italy's ancient cities: Its tower-studded facades, its wide alcove balconies and the picturesque signs of its old inns and pubs were all that was needed to convince the club "I borghi piú belli d´Italia" of its worthiness.
A visit to the Säben/Sabiona convent situated on the mountain overlooking the city will provide you with a better understanding of the local culture, as well as with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. This picturesque Benedictine monastery is one of the oldest places of pilgrimage and the first bishop's residence in Tyrol.

Bressanone, situated at 559 metres above sea level, is the chief city of Valle Isarco and is also the bishops’ town. From the very first moment on you will love this more than 1000 years old town with medieval arcades and a mighty cathedral. From the 16th century until the year 1803 Bressanone served as an important seat to the bishops of Upper Italy and Southern Germany. Only in 1964 the bishop’s see was moved to Bolzano.

Bolzano (situated at 262 m above sea level) is South Tyrol’s capital and attracts visitors from all over the world.
Already some thousand years ago, in the basin surrounding the city of Bolzano early settlements were reported. The town of Bolzano has been built in the 12th and 13th century and its medieval appearance wasn’t changed until the 19th century. Then Bolzano’s rise to a popular holiday resort began and above all the quarter Gries became a renowned climatic health resort.
Nowadays, the city of Bolzano boasts numerous attractions and sites of interest. There is for instance the legendary Iceman “Ötzi” in the Archaeology Museum, numerous trade fairs about the most different topics as well as a total of seven museums and four castles, which are simply a must for lovers of culture. In the historic city centre exclusive shopping opportunities are waiting for you beneath romantic medieval arcades.

Situated at an altitude of 325 m above sea level the village Merano is characterised by a gentle climate of the south. It’s known as a climatic health resort since the 19th century already! Only recently the new thermal baths of Merano opened their doors with state-of-the-art facilities such as 25 pools, saunas and steam baths and much more!
But Merano is also popular for its outstanding and rich culture. Ranging from the Opera Weeks in springtime to the Music Weeks and the International Wine Festival & Culinaria in late summer, the number of events is simply huge. Definitely worth seeing and of special historic importance is the inner city of Merano, featuring by the way exclusive shopping opportunities beneath romantic medieval arcades.

The Garda Lake is the largest Italian lake, situated at the foot of the Alps, in a beautiful area of southern Europe and offers the visitor a wonderful natural scenery, full of colours. Thanks to the Mediterranean climate there flourishes a rich vegetation: lemon trees, oleanders, magnolias and bouganville. The cultivation of vineyards and olive groves produces good wines and olive oil. Walking leisurely around the small village centres, going on a boat trip, exploring the surroundings in a wide choice of itineraries are the best way of enjoying the lively atmosphere of the lake and the beauty of the landscape.
