"In my opinion, Bolzano is a mountain, which changed into a town. The moment you change position, it changes its appearance. You keep walking and the profile changes; you return and always find new sides to it.
It speaks a variety of languages. It is basically an actor, bewitching and contradictory, repelling and attracting, warm-hearted and cold." R. Messner
The regional capital of South Tyrol, Bolzano lies in the Southern Alps and in northern Italy, in the midst of incomparable natural landscapes. In the east the Dolomites screen the view; in the south it extends into the Oltradige Castle wonderland, in the west lie the magical larch meadows of the Monzoccolo and in the north the quaint Sarentino valley.
In the town itself countless homely restaurants with the best of Italian and Austrian cuisine entice you to stop and eat. Side by side stand the many boutiques, markets and delicatessens, for which Bolzano is world-famous. If you stroll through the town, or hike in the nearby mountains, you will not be starved of culture. The Museum of Archaeology exhibits the 5,400 year old mummy of "Ötzi". There is a lively theatre and music scene and even the opera has a place here.
