South Tyrol in 60 seconds

Contrasting Symbiosis
South Tyrol is the most Northern Province in Italy. It borders with Switzerland to the west and with Austria to the East and to the North. South Tyrol has 520,000 inhabitants, with every fifth person living in the capital of Bolzano. For more than five centuries, this region was part of Austria, until after World War I the victorious powers awarded it to their ally Italy. Today, South Tyrol is a role-model for different ethnic minorities living together and where German, Italian and Ladin are the official languages.

Alpine and Mediterranean
South Tyrol means snow-covered mountains and palm promenades, cappuccino on the piazza, dumplings at alpine huts....but also living traditions and modern trends, protected buildings and contemporary architecture. The cuisine is a symbiosis of traditional alpine dishes and Mediterranean finesse. Hence, here it is normal to get dumplings and spaghetti, crunchy “Schüttelbrot” bread and grissini.

Spontaneous and Reliable
Three languages, three cultures, one living space: Alpine clarity and Mediterranean ease meet in South Tyrol and combine with a very special culture, which can be strongly noticed when in contact with the locals. Characterised by a moving history, South Tyroleans are mainly spontaneous and hearty, reliable and authentic in everything they do.

Nature and Culture
Orchards, vineyards and alpine pastures, densely leaved and needle forests stretching up to the Dolomite peaks and glaciers. Only three percent of the entire surface of South Tyrol is inhabited. In South Tyrol, culture means more than visiting museums, churches and castles, even though there are more than 400 castles in the region. Here, culture is a lifestyle, which can be felt in every-day life.
