You cannot miss this tower - it's right in the middle of the main pedestrian street of Vipiteno - it dominates the city center and it's the most iconic city landmarkh.

Built in the 15th century, it's 46 meters high. The original spire was destroyed by fire in 1867 and it was replaced with the current angular roof.

The tower itself can be visited only on specific occasions - normally you just have the outside view.

Torre delle Dodici or "Zwoelver Turm" is located at the head of Via Citta Nuova. Exactly at 12 Noon every day, the ageless tower strikes 12... and alerts everybody it's lunchtime or "Mahlzeit!" The tower has been around for 5 centuries, but the old clock tower was rebuilt... relatively recently, in the late 1800s.

The clock is more or less the centerpiece of New City or Citta Nuova... the main/shopping district of Vipiteno (aka Sterzing). Along the main pedestrian way leading to the tower, you will find a variety of quaint shops, outdoor cafes, hotels and restaurants. We spent 5 hours walking, browsing, shopping and dining in Citta Nuova. In the center of the via is a beer garden and open-air market. If you wish to sample genuine Alto Adigen specialties, this is the place to be. The various shops and restaurants are upscale, but not too pricey. You will be able to find filling menu of the day meals for 10 - 11 Euros. Stick around until noon, and you will be treated to the melody of "Zwoelver." I highly recommend a morning or afternoon taking in the sights at Torre delle Dodici.

This old city tower dates back to the 15th century and was modified after being burned down in 1867.
It's definitely the landmark of Sterzing-Vipeteno and separates the old and the newer part of the city.
It seems that visiting the tower is possible during special events in Summer, buit we didn't have the luck to go up.
