Nature and Culture
The higher you climb orchards, vineyards and broad-leafed woods give way to dense coniferous forests, Alpine pastureland and finally to the world of the glacier and the sheer barren rock of the Dolomites. Only 8% of South Tyrol’s terrain is habitable, with everything from Alpine farmsteads to classy hotels. Culture here goes far beyond visiting museums, churches and castles, of which there are over 800. Awareness of life and joie de vivre are omnipresent here in everyday life.
