Culture & Sights

In South Tyrol culture is everyday culture that people live by, not a souvenir that holidaymakers can pack in their suitcases and leave to gather dust at home. The question often arises: what is German, what is Italian? The tri-lingual region unites the best from the cultures living here: in Italy’s northernmost province Alpine snugness and congeniality meets the Mediterranean atmosphere; the down-to-earth approach meets the dolce vita. However, culture in South Tyrol also means history, illustrated by the numerous churches, fortified manor houses and castles found throughout the region. Contemporary art and architecture provide a wonderful counterpart. We present them to you here.
