Sonnenbad in Südtirol
Discover the region
The south side of the Alps is climatically favored by almost 300 days of sunshine a year. Even in the cold season this leads to pleasant sunny conditions on the mountain slopes and valleys. Towards the south of the region, temperatures are already pleasantly warm in the spring months, while further north there is still a cool winter atmosphere. Summer and autumn offer the best conditions for cycling, hiking and mountaineering, in a landscape between vineyards and the Dolomites that has no equal in terms of possibilities and beauty.
Nature in South Tyrol is as unique as it deserves to be protected. Seven natural parks - from the Stelvio Pass in Val Venosta to the Tre Cime in Alta Pusteria - and a national park make a valuable contribution to the conservation and research of the natural and cultural landscape. The value of this magnificent nature can be discovered through visitor centers, sports tours, as well as explorations.

South Tyrolean cuisine is a unique fusion of traditional Alpine dishes and Mediterranean culinary culture. Numerous starred restaurants show off their skills, and excellent wines and spirits are skilfully paired with first, second and desserts. A special sense of quality and regionality can be appreciated everywhere.
Noteworthy are the South Tyrolean snack with speck and cheese or one of the many types of gnocchi. And as a conclusion? An apple strudel made with shortcrust pastry or the classic tiramisu`.
