South Tyrol is located: between Austria and Switzerland in the country of Italy, between Alpine peaks and Mediterranean landscapes and between the German and Italian language areas. The various regions within the province of South Tyrol are characteristic of these contrasts. In the Dolomites, holidays are all about hiking, skiing and the magnificent mountains, whilst wine, the lovely landscape adorned with forts, the warm climate and the urban flair of South Tyrol's capital city are of central importance in the region of Bolzano/Bozen and Environs. In Valle Isarco/Eisacktal valley, the ”valley of trails”, everything revolves around hiking at all elevations, be it through medieval cities or along themed and pleasure trails. Merano/Meran and Environs strongly embodies South Tyrol’s contradictions. The spa town of Merano is located amidst palm trees and the peaks of the Texelgruppe Nature Park at over 3,000 m. Finally, characteristic region of the Val Venosta/Vinschgau valley, located in the province’s west, features South Tyrol’s highest mountain, the “King Ortler”, as well as the mystical church tower in the Reschensee lake and the great wide valley featuring a unique microclimate.
