Holidays in the Alps: discover the beauty of South Tyrol
Multifaceted region, unique contrasts
Holidays in the Alps, on the discovery of South Tyrol, means snow-covered mountain peaks and promenades lined with palm trees, cappuccinos on the piazza, dumplings (canederli/Knödel) at the alpine huts. But also living tradition and modern trends, protected buildings and modern architecture await you during your holidays in the Alps.
South Tyrol is a melting pot where Alpine down-to-earth mentality and Mediterranean ease meet, creating a fusion: a very special and very lovably culture, noticeable in contact with the locals. Characterised by a moving history, South Tyroleans are spontaneous and warm, reliable and authentic in everything they do.
During your holidays in the Alps, you can find orchards, vineyards and alpine pastures, dense leaved and needle forests, stretching up to the Dolomite peaks and glaciars. Only 8% of the entire surface of South Tyrol is inhabited and the number of farms and hotels is still about equal. In South Tyrol culture means more than visiting museums, churches and castles (there are over 800 castles in South Tyrol). Here, between mountain peaks and palms, culture is a lifestyle, which can be felt every single day of your holidays in the Alps.
