Via dei Conciapelli (Tanner Alley)

At the end of the Via dei Conciapelli alley, the Via Piave road continues to the Piazza Dogana square, the former customs office.

There, where the Bolzano Arcades end, a little alley leads further on towards east: It is the Via dei Conciapelli (Gerbergasse, in German), which connects the Via Grappoli with the Via Piave.

The Via dei Conciapelli, located below the Town Hall Square and above the Parkhotel Laurin, is named after the tanners’ guild. Here the raw animal skins used to be processed into leather by the use of tanning agents, and accordingly - as in the Via Bottai alley - the smell in this part of the city was quite strange. The houses with their turrets have a medieval appearance and today house small shops and service providers such as beauty salons and hairdressers.

At the end of the narrow alley, the Via Piave road leads today to the so-called “Zollstange” in the historical district of Dodiciville. This was once the customs station of the trading town of Bolzano. The Via dei Conciapelli is part of the historical centre and can only be discovered on foot.

Access to this site may be restricted or prohibited due to current measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus, in order to protect the health of visitors and employees.
