    Casa borghese in Piazza Municipio

    by croisbeauty Updated Feb 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Il Municipio

    Favorite thing: Il Municipio (the Town Hall), situated at beautiful Piazza Municipio, was designed in neo-Baroque style and erected in 1907.
    The front facade of the building, and the one that is situated next to it, is nicely coloured with the ornaments. Too bad I didn't take the picture of it under the day light.

    The Bell-Tower of the Cathedral

    Favorite thing: See the very impressive and attractive bell-tower disagned in a pure Gothic style. I would like to see the very same scene under the bright sunny day. Hope to have sunny day next time I'll visit Bolzano.

    Piazza Walther

    Favorite thing: The Main Square of Bolzano nowadays is called Piazza Walther (von der Vogelweide), after German troubadour, however untill 1814 it was called Johannsplatz. The monument of Walther stands right in the middle of the square.

    Fondest memory: The busy and very spacious Piazza Walther is the centre of the city.

    Unique Buildings in Bolzano

    Buildings in Bolzano

    Fondest memory: The buildings and houses in Bolzano look very unique in that they don't really look Italian. They look more like Austrian or German style buildings. The colors, the windows, balconies make these buildings in Bolzano very unique. And therefore, it makes the city of Bolzano a unique Italian city also.

    Take the cable tram up to the...

    by worldtrekker Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Take the cable tram up to the Gruppo di Sella near the mountain, Marmolada. If you have time and are fit, you can also hike up! The Gruppo di Sella is encircled by mountain roads. So, if you're looking at a road atlas to find this place, look for a road that is a circle. That dot of a person in the pic is my brother standing on a ledge with some steep drop-offs on both sides... This is only a few minutes walk from the tram station.

    lichinga's General Tip

    by lichinga Written Sep 12, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: If there's an Alpine culture, well, I think Bolzano might be a good representative. The city has little to share with the average impression you may have from any Italian city: of course, Italy is made by several different aspects which may be quite far away one from the other, but Bolzano has something more. It is not just the fact of being a 'different' Italian city, but it seems it belongs to another universe, something partially suspended in the fading lights of the former Aubsburg Empire and something very well based on a reality of an autonomous mountain economy which exists and may be recognized.

    Go shopping

    by eurotravels Written Sep 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: The things for sale in the shops in Bolzano aren't cheap but some of the kitchen equipment is of an extremely high standard. There seem to be lots of craftsman made knives. I bought a parmesan cheese grater - the grater bit sits on a wooden box, so after grating you can shake the cheese out. I use it several times a week and it still looks good. Cost about 30 Euro but worth every penny. Ours was from Schoenhuber Franchi.
