South Tyrol offers a profusion of cultural variety, special cultural characteristics and fantastic opportunities for a holiday in the Alps.
With the Mediterranean influenced Merano region, the gentle low mountain range in Valle Isarco and the alpine landscapes of Val Pusteria and Dolomites, a holiday in South Tyrol provides the perfect conditions for a hiking holiday, skiing holiday, wellness holiday and culinary refinement in the mountains.

The profusion and quality of cultural treasures and miracles of nature in South Tyrol are highly unusual for such a small country. Majestic castles, sublime monuments, interesting museums and an enchanting landscape all wait to be discovered. During your holidays in South Tyrol you should not miss these highlights:
  • The monastery Abbazia di Novacella in Varna near Bressanone
  • The Baroque Cathedral in Bressanone
  • The Dolomites, since 2009 part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage
  • The “Ötzi” archaeological museum in Bolzano exhibiting the “ice mummy”, the oldest mummy in the world.
  • One of the “Messner Mountain Museums”, perhaps the one on Castle Firmian in Bolzano, the one on Brunico Castle in Brunico, or from 2015 the one on the top of Plan de Corones
  • The botanical gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle in Merano, and while you’re there, why not include a stroll through the once world renowned cultural city of Merano with its pergolas
  • Swimming in Lago di Caldaro, situated in a picturesque, almost Mediterranean landscape between Caldaro and Termeno in the South of South Tyrol, surrounded by vineyards

 A holiday in South Tyrol is also an ideal opportunity for visiting one or two of the beauty spots in “Bella Italia”. Recommended visits from the Hotel Fichtenhof are:
  • In the East and the South Lake Garda tempts you with its beautiful villages surrounded by olive groves, gentle bays and impressive rock faces arising steeply from the lake.
  • Verona is always worth a visit, not only during the opera festival “Arena di Verona”. The elegant city of Romeo and Juliet not only boasts a well preserved Roman arena but also a plethora of cultural treasures.
  • The romantic lagoon city of Venice is easily explored during a day trip.
