A small province with great diversity

The Alps in the north and the sea in the south. German, Italian and Ladin South Tyrol's regions typify the region's contrasts. Which would you like to discover first?

South Tyrol is a place where contrasts meld together and a journey of discovery leads you through both Alpine and Mediterranean terrain. Here, the "pale mountains", i.e.  UNESCO World Natural Heritage Dolomites, are accented by the green forests and meadows to the east. Similarly, in the west,  the Ortler mountain is contrasted by the shielding of the main chain of the Alps to the north. In between, valleys formed by glaciers and water shape the province whilst rivers meander past orchards and vineyards as well as picturesque towns, wine villages, castles and fortresses are set further south. 

The art of holidaying

Where mountain and city experiences overlap and some of Italy's finest wines are produced

Experience history by strolling beneath medieval arcades and visiting majestic churches and stately Art Nouveau villas. Admire contemporary architecture and celebrate the hospitality of Alpine-Mediterranean food culture in our holiday regions. In the South Tyrol's cities of Bolzano/Bozen, Meran/Merano, Brixen/Bressanone, Bruneck/Brunico, Sterzing/Vipiteno, Glurns/Glorenza and Laives/Leifers resonate with urban flair. During your visit, roam flower-lined squares and quiet alleys. When you stop for a coffee, listen to the mix of languages and look at the shop windows and draw inspiration for your shopping experience in South Tyrol.

It doesn't make any difference if you prefer snowshowing to skiing or cross-country skiing to sledding. Whichever is your favourite winter sport, you'll always find a cable car or bus to get to the ski resorts or your hiking destination. And when you're not up in the mountains, you can call at a winery and taste award-winning whites and reds. Along the Alto Adige Wine Road, discover the province’s Mediterranean flair and go on a vineyard tour.

Winter holiday from Vinschgau to the Dolomites

The place where everything is tailored to your winter desires

Get your day started with the immaculately groomed slopes of South Tyrol's ski resorts and marvel at the sun shining on the peaks of the Dolomites. Take a snowshoe hike and enjoy the silence of nature parks or stay fit while cross-country skiing in the valley or through the Alpine pastures. All these winter activities have a common thread: they take you in the traditional ski huts to get a taste of what the South Tyrolean cuisine really is.

You can experience the very best of wintertime across South Tyrol, from east to west and from north to south. Every holiday region has something unique to offer that goes beyond sports activities. Are you looking for a wellness hotel?  Many are the accommodations where you'll renew your body, mind and heart: wellness hotels right on the slopes or chalets in the forest. During your holiday in South Tyrol, you'll also come closer to the three local languages - German, Italian and Ladin - and improve your cultural awareness.
