There are direct, fast (ES) trains from nearby stations in both cases, however Venice has the edge:

Venezia-Mestre to Bolzano: 2h44 - about 10 mins longer if you choose departure involving change in Verona

München-Hbf-Bolzano: 3h58

See http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

Buses from Marco Polo airport stop outside Mestre station. You can research Munich airport connections on the airport's website.

The nearest significant airport is Verona. It has far fewer flights than Munich or Venice, and doesn't have transatlantic flights, but is still possible from Minneapolis-St Paul with only one transfer.

Verona Porta Nuova station to Bolzano takes from 1.5 hours. Bus from airport to station 15 minutes (cf. 17 minutes from Venice Marco Polo to Mestre station).

Verona - 1 hr 45 mins and has regular trains

Venice - Fast train is 2 hours but not many in a day. Slow train takes longer.

Innsbruck - 2 hours with international train and is every 2 hours.

Milan is a possibility - take the train via Verona. Also Bergamo.

PS - If you are interested in Bolzano then have a read of my site. Bit basic at the moment though.
