Bolzano – Bozen and its neighboring villages: San Genesio, Renon, Colle, Sarentino, Eggental, and Carezza with its lake are a very unique and special place in Italy.”For me, Bolzano – Bozen is a mountain transformed into a city. The moment you move, it changes appearance. You edge forward, and the profile is different; you go back and discover new faces. It speaks other languages. At its heart, it is an actor, enchanting and contradictory, haughty an alluring, warm-hearted and chilly.” – R. Messner
At the crossroad of Culture:
Bolzano – Bozen, the only city in the world with both a competition in honor of F. Busoni and a house where Mozart slept. An elegant salon where different people meet, an exchange of cultures, music, and performances.
The central Piazza Walther was named for the troubadour Walther von der Vogelweide, one street named Dante and another for Goethe; a conservatory carrying Monteverdi’s name Orchestra Haydn. A trilingual University, and an Academy of Design, and a Film School both bilingual. This is what makes Bolzano – Bozen a little significant capital of the European atmosphere!
The Gateway to the Dolomites
Bolzano – Bozen lies 265 m above sea level and one of the most critical routes running from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, connecting North and South. Mountains surround it.
Above the city, in the Dolomites, lies the “Rosengarten“- the legendary realm of Laurin, the dwarf king. His enchanted garden glows an unearthly red at twilight. This is a guide to the city and its neighboring villages: San Genesio, Renon, Colle, Sarentino, Eggental, and Carezza with its lake.
