Via dei Portici / hLaubengasse
Oct 2020
Via dei Portici (Laubengasse) is a 300 meters long street in Bolzano pedestrian area in the city center, with medieval porticoed buildings. Most buidings now host high-street shops.

Busy shopping area
Sep 2020 • Couples
Bolzano’s traffic is very Italian, very hectic. Park near the train station, 1.50 euro per hour. 5 minutes walk into the centre. The road is pedestrianised, very busy. Had something to eat and drink on piazza Walter, most restaurants are not open all day and open after 6.

Nowadays a shopping street
Feb 2019
A curving narrow street that became one of Bolzano's most known. Nowadays a shopping center but the view is still nice with arcades at many builings.

Many nice stores
Dec 2019
While we found the city as a whole and this street of shops very beautiful there were numerous scammers accosting people as they walked through the town. They seemed to target those who were alone and did not speak the language well. You had to be very aggressive to get them to leave you alone. They would try to get you to take an item out of their hand to look at an then berate you to pay them for it. During our trip which included Munich, Verona, Venice we never encountered anything of this magnitude. Bolzano officials need to get a better handle on these scammers.

Very busy

When you visit Merano it's a musst do to walk along this street. Lot's of shops and things to see. I love the fact that there are - unequal to many other cities - still a lot of individual stores and not only the shops you find in every city.

East-west orientation to protect from northerly winds
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is a busy but pleasant, colonnaded commercial street running through the heart of Bolzano. It’s oriented east-west so as to provide at least some protection from northerly winter winds. They were pretty smart those medieval folks, at least as regards urban planning.

It’s a street that offers several architectural hints of its antiquity, despite the several up-market modern shops that are now protected within its porticoes.

The Oldest Street.
Aug 2018 • Couples
The city of Bozen-Bolzano was founded around 1180. The Laubengasse or Via dei Portici in Italian, was the first street (and still is the main shopping street) and runs 300 meters from east to west.
The covered walkways underneath the arches are an attraction by itself.
Lovely painted and decorated vaults and some beautiful facades are a must see.
