All accommodations in South Tyrol


Once a spa town and favourite winter travel destination of Empress Sissi, today a garden town full of life at the foot of the mountain peaks and palm trees. Rich in culture, scents and colours, savour the light Mediterranean spirit between the flower beds and promenades, between the Kurhaus and Terme Merano. Experience the farming tradition along the traditional Waalwege canal trails.


South Tyrol’s largest town units German and Italian culture like no other. A former trading centre with a magnificent shopping street beneath the arcades, the Waltherplatz square and the Obstmarkt square. Green promenades and vineyards extend as far as the town borders while cable cars run up to the airy holiday resorts.


The oldest town in Tyrol and origin of the Eisacktal valley white wines. In this former Bishop’s seat, the past and present are combined in a particularly refreshing way and tradition and leisure can be found side by side. From the Domplatz square, look out to the Plose ski area and enjoy lively hospitality with some “Törggelen” wine sampling. 


Even Albrecht Dürer lost his heart to this artists’ town on the Eisack river. The town is characterised by its narrow alleyways, mediaeval town houses and rich history. And the Säben monastery towers remote and proud above. Walk up and enjoy views across the rooftops - or visit the Loreto Treasure in the town museum.


Italy’s most livable small town at the centre of the Pustertal valley - and connected to the mountains: two of Reinhold Messner’s museums can be found here, along with the Kronplatz recreational mountain. Weave your way along the lengthy Stadtgasse street, get to know the traditional craft of cloth processing or explore the folk museum in Dietenheim/Teodone. 


Italy’s northernmost townis characterised by mining and its close proximity to the Brennerpass. Mighty castles flank the town borders like fortresses, the striking Zwölferturm tower separates the old town from the new town and mediaeval facades adorn the shopping street. The Rosskopf mountain is just a cable car journey away and some high-Alpine hiking destinations are close by.


The smallest town in South Tyrol and one of the most beautiful places in Italy. With a long past as a fortress and trading centre, this is still evident today in the town’s mediaeval flair and completely preserved town walls. Discover the art works of Paul Flora, the avantgarde architecture of Werner Tscholl and the traditional Palabirne pear.


Just a few kilometres from South Tyrol's capital city of Bolzano/Bozen on the South Tyrolean Wine Road is Laives and the neighbouring communities of  Bronzolo/Branzoll and   Vadena/Pfatten. Away from the hustle and bustle, you can experience how applegrowing has impacted the life of locals during a hike, walk or cycle ride on the Etschtal Cycle Path. The Laives High Altitude Trail offers a change of perspective.

Listen to the town's stories

Inhale the spirit of the times, be captivated by the music and theatre scene or travel through history. This is also part of a successful experience in the town. As is being pampered by the exceptional hospitality. With an aperitif at the piazza, on the roof terrace or in the iconic inn. Choose and enjoy!
