Welcome to Bolzano/Bozen!
Although Bolzano isn’t a particularly large city, some information about how to get from A to B in the city is surely useful.
Whether it’s small, medium, or large, we always ask ourselves the same questions when we arrive in a city... Where does the restricted traffic zone start? Where can I park? How do I get to the centre? Where can I leave my luggage?
We want you to feel like you’re on holiday the minute you see the sign for Bolzano Bozen. For this to be possible, you need a few pieces of useful information:
If you are arriving by car or motor home, your first priority is parking. At the traffic junctions, an electronic parking guidance system will point you towards vacant parking spaces in the city. The easiest way is to park the car in a parking area outside the centre and to continue by public transport or to walk.
How to arrive by car from the south (A22 Exit Bolzano Sud and State Road 12):
There are many parking spots at the Fiera Bolzano (800 spots on the roof of the trade fair/restaurant/bar); open Monday to Friday from 7:30 to 20:30. Parking is free unless there is a trade show or other event taking place on the premises.
- Connection to the centre:
How to arrive by car from the north (A22 Exit Bolzano Nord and State Road 12):
‘Bozen Mitte’ car park via Mayr-Nusser-Weg street. From here it’s just 5 minutes on foot to the central Waltherplatz square.
How to arrive by car from the west (State Roads 42 and 38):
‘Tiefgarage Stadthalle’ underground parking (600 spaces, enter via Mailandstraße street), connected to the centre by urban bus service (every 10 minutes with line 5 to Mailandstraße street).
Caution, some areas of the city are traffic restricted and the corresponding access roads are automatically monitored with cameras. Take beautiful photos of the city, but be careful not to have a photograph of your license plate sent home.
Have a look here to see which areas are video monitored.
Want to have a stroll through the city without luggage? Want the security that your bike is safely secured?
If arriving by train, there is no need to carry your luggage through the city. Instead, you can leave it in the Base Camp Dolomites luggage storage area. You can also safely store your bike here or rent sports equipment and even prams and child carriers.
Open 8 am to 8 pm during the main season. In the train station, track 1. You can reserve this service online.

Can you guess which means of transport is most popular with locals in Bolzano? The bike of course! Small wonder that Bolzano is considered the bike capital of Italy.
So hop on your bike and explore the city! Bolzano has more than 50 kilometres of cycle paths. For instance, you can drive along the Eisack and Talfer rivers protected from traffic. The cycle paths connect various residential areas of the city with the pedestrian area of the old town.
You don’t even need to bring your own bike. The city municipality’s bike hire is located close to the train station.
