The famous Christmas market in Bolzano and smaller crib exhibitions and events in the villages put you in the right mood for the cold season. The frozen lakes invite to extended skating tours on sunny days and in February the old traditional carnival revelry is done to banish winter. Those who love the snow have enough possibilities for snow shoe hikes on the Mendola mountain group or the Salto or can experience the near skiing areas on day trips.
While nature still sleeps in other regions of South Tyrol, the so-called Frühlingstal near Caldaro already in March starts with the first heralds of spring. April invites you to walking tours and bike trips through the blooming fruit orchards and in May, when everything blossoms, the temperatures can reach already summer level. All set for the first bath day at the Lago di Caldaro or the Laghi di Monticolo?
The colour green dominates the landscape along the Wine Road. The villages are nestled amid South Tyrols largest wine-growing area. Spend hot summer days at the lakes or take the funiculars up to cooler areas. And of course the decorative villages along the South Tyrolean Wine Road are a hint for every wine enthusiast and gourmet. Bolzano is a centre between Italian and Central European culture and is tempting with numerous highlights and shopping experiences.
The height of vintage and fruit harvest causes bustling activities along the Wine Road. After a hard working day the tradition demands celebrating with Törggelen. Autumnal walking tours through coloured forests combined with social Törggele-celebrations determine this period of the year. Additional a wide programme of events is offered at Bolzano and the surrounding villages along the Wine Road and plenty of castles and churches wait to be discovered!
