Thanks to its double perspective, Bolzano is able to mesmerize tourists who come from all over. Its two lifestyles, one Northern European and the other more Mediterranean, combine to make the perfect union, which can be clearly seen in the historic and artistic treasures of this city.
For centuries, Bolzano has been the privileged centre of commercial exchanges between Italy and Germany.
Today, the capital of Alto Adige has become a cosmopolitan city that knows how to be lively, cheerful, modern and yet refined all at the same time!
The presence of Central Europe and Mediterranean traditions is most evident in Alto Adige cuisine, as well as in delicacies from Bolzano.
Each season, dishes made with authentic flavours fill the air with their aromas. Do not miss an opportunity to experience the Törggelen (an ancient tradition). In autumn, the South Tyrolean farmhouses open their doors to guests to offer all sorts of treats typical of the season including: chestnuts, grape must, speck and new wine.
