Bolzano, Italy

The alpine city Vipiteno is the northern most town of Italy. The german called Sterzing was founded in the Middle Ages and has retained its irresistible romantic and artistic charm. The Fugger weren't the only well known entrepreneurs which opened offices in the medieval period of prosperity. The charme, build in the Maximilian age, enchants still today! Today the small alpine town, which once served as a refuge for kings and emperors, is a sparkling jewel rich in ancient art, boasting in particular numerous wonderful bay windows as well as elegant boutiques.
You will be able to enjoy unforgettable days in the midst of the spectacular Dolomites mountain scenery in summer as well as in winter: Unspoilt countryside, adventure and relaxation in an area characterised by an outstanding beauty. The Rosskopf cable car are only two passes away of the centre. There you will find a beautiful Hiking area in summer and a small but inviting skiing area in winter. A real highlight is the longest illuminated and with artificial snow covered sledding run of Italy. 
Meadows, forests and mountains - the secret of memories that will last for a lifetime. The wealth of cultural and historical gems bears witness to a past rich in tradition. The town of Sterzing, a flourishing trading centre bustling with life and activity, constantly renews and revives the glory and splendour of the Fugger era. The charm of this area will certainly impress you, no matter whether you visit it: as a transient tourist or for a vacation for a longer period of time.
