South Tyrol’s Architecture

Innovation and cultural roots, form and function, a vision of the future, and the retention of old building materials all shape South Tyrol’s architecture. In addition to numerous churches, monasteries, forts, and stately farmhouses that bear witness to South Tyrol’s eventful history, a new building trend is taking hold in South Tyrol, one that emphasises the preservation of cultural heritage and is open to contemporary forms at the same time. Local materials and the tasteful integration of buildings into the surrounding landscape are at the centre of this movement, resulting in a new stylistic idiom only possible in South Tyrol. Want to see it for yourself? The buildings presented here will lead you on a journey of discovery to the most interesting architectural attractions. In addition to classics like the Therme Meran spa, residential buildings, hotels, wineries and schools are also represented. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of South Tyrolean architecture!
