TRIPS TO VENICE, BOZEN, MERAN

Details

As part of your holiday in South Tyrol you can also visit some of the larger towns in the region. Aside from Bozen and Meran, Venice is also well worth a visit.

Bozen is just 20 kilometres from Hotel Tirolensis in Tisens. The South Tyrol capital city has a Mediterranean flair to it, especially the historic centre with its markets and lanes; here you have a real taste of Italy. The relatively young university lends the city an up-beat feeling. Many bars and pubs enrich the tourist attractions aside from theatre, castles and shopping. In the archeological museum South Tyrol's most famous exhibit is on display:

the glacier mummy „Ötzi“.

Meran is just 15 kilometres from the Hotel Tirolensis. The city has a history as a spa resort dating back some 170 years, indeed it still is top of the league in the field of wellness and health resorts.

During the "Belle Epoque" at the turn of the 20th century, the upper classes and the nobility made their appearance here on a regular basis; since then the two great culinary traditions of "alpine" and "mediterranean" have become firmly established. The climate reflects this contrast: palm trees in the city and the snow capped mountains as a backdrop. Highlights for your visit to Meran: "Kurhaus", city theatre, Trauttmansdorff gardens, shopping in the city centre, as well as museums, churches and castles.

Venice is approximately 290 kilometres from the Tirolensis hotel. One thing is certain: if there's one trip which is worth making, then this is it. Especially if you do not often visit northern Italy, you shouldn't miss out on this opportunity. Countless splendid palaces such as the Doge's Palace stand cheek by jowl with ornate churches such as St. Mark's; quaint lanes nestled between the houses of the historic centre and gondolas bob on the water of the canals. This pomp and splendour draws millions of visitors to Venice each year, the prices are corresponingly exorbitant. By taking a day trip from South Tyrol you can enjoy the magnificence of Venice to the full, without having to pay for costly accomodation. At Carnivaltime Venice is of course at its most splendid. Discover the charms of northern Italy during a cultural break in South Tyrol, with day trips to Bozen, Meran and Venice.

CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS

Details

South Tyrol's side valleys have been sheltered from the influence of the outside world for centuries. Stories and traditions are handed down from generation to generation and are still very much alive to this day.

If you want to embrace culture with all of your senses then South Tyrol is the ideal place - with its 800 castles, fortresses and estates. Countless museums are at your disposal for finding out more about culture and local history. The culinary offers in South Tyrol are exemplary of the climate, countryside, culture and people of this diversifed region.

Klöckeln

"Klöckeln" is an ancient Germanic fertility custom which takes place in Sarnthein.

When scary, ghoulish screams and the din of bells ringing can be heard on a winter's night, then everybody in Sarnthein knows: It's "Klöckelnacht". On the first three Thursdays in Advent the "Klöckler" go from house to house, singing their songs with the ancient melody.
