The city is located on a valley floor, which is surrounded on three sides by high mountain ranges. So the climate in this area is relatively mild, almost Mediterranean and therefore there are produced some excellent wines. Furthermore, starting in Bozen you can make countless hiking tours through the surrounding mountains, for example to the famous Rosengarten.
Or you take the nice old train to the wonderfully situated villages on the high plateau Ritten; not to forget about the mighty castle Runkelstein at the entrance of the valley Sarntal. Inside, there are large wall paintings, which rank among the most important profane gothic frescos. Recommendable is also a discovery tour through the old town of Bozen, where you can stroll through the narrow alleys and take a break in one of the most traditional Tyrolean inns.
Peculiarities and sights of Bozen
If you are on holiday in South Tyrol, you absolutely have to visit its capital. Probably Bozen is the most Italian city of the region. This is reflected not only by some architectural remains of fascism like the court house or the endless issue of the victory monument; also on the menus you will find typical Tyrolean dishes followed by Italian specialties: spaghetti with clams and “Schlutzkrapfen” (kind of paste bags filled with spinach and curd), tiramisu and “Strauben” (sweet, fried pastries)… A similar mix characterizes also the life in the streets of Bozen: pretty dirndls and traditional costumes next to noble Italian fashion, strong dialects and German standard language.
