We were impressed by the size and vibrancy of the large pedestrian city center; about a dozen blocks. Crowds of people, many shops and restaurants, and pleasing alpine architecture. Walking and dining here was a highlight of our five day stay. Beyond the city center we found much more of an industrial feel, and we found that a large number... More

Bolzano is actually very small. To see the downtown would take just a short time. It is a nice place to have some German beer and some German or Italian food followed by Italian coffee. Yummmm. You can walk up the river valley toward Runkelstein Castle for a very pleasant walk. Everything was closed (museums, castles, cable cars) when I... More

We visited just before Christmas and basically the whole town is one big Christmas market. Very pedestrian friendly and easily accessible. Great selection of food and wines and very easy to find somewhere to eat. Magnificent views or the surrounding mountains make this a very picturesque place to spend time. Only regret was that it didn't snow during our visit... More

Get past the appalling outskirts and you will find a magnificent centre shopping to die for for if that's your bag. Museums galore a fantastic castle nearby, a splendid market and great restaurants, highly recommended.

We decided to visit Bolzano after reading about it in the magazine Monocle and didn't regret our decision. A lovely small town with great food and quality products. Everywhere is easily accessible either by foot or a short bus ride. Beautifully surrounded by mountains. Love the apple pies here. Great place to stay when visiting the Dolomites.

We were in Bolzano in December and loved the Christmas market, which had a different flavor than those in Austria or Germany. Unlike another reviewer here, we encountered nice people, though not extremely friendly - just like most we encountered in those other countries. And the Duomo is WONDERFUL - again, a different experience than another reviewer here. Very interesting... More

We enjoyed our time at Bozen/Bolzano, but noticed a bit of tension in the air that sometimes resulted in visitors not feeling as welcome as in a typical Italian community. Luckily, the Christmas Market was great and it brought out the best in everyone.
