Haderburg also known as Salorno Castle, is a medieval castle ruin above Salorno. Since time immemorial it denotes the language barrier between the German and the Italian speaking Tyroleans. The castle grounds are quite impressive even though they are now uninhabited ruins. The middle age castle tavern is especially worth visiting. In the regional capital of Bolzano you can visit the Ötzi Museum, Museion – a museum for modern art, the Museum of Natural Science, the Bolzano Dome, the fruit market, Walther Square with the statue of the Minstrels, Runkelstein Castle and the lively trade under the arches. The Frühlingstal valley in bloom when in other places snow is still lying on the ground, and in the ice holes it is +4°C all year round, something that is a real treat in summer. Reinhold Messner has left the mountains a memorial and erected 5 museums. The main museum is located in Sigmundskron Castle in Firmiano between Appiano and Bolzano: MMM – Messner Mountain Museum. The Wine Road consists of several wineries which invite you to visit and also to taste. We can recommend the wineries Kurtatsch, Tiefenbrunner, Baron Widmann, Elena Walch and Haas. The Wine Museum is located in Caldaro. Pure culture in castles, manors, cloisters, churches and chapels. The choice is vast!

Amongst the most beautiful gardens in Italy and amongst the top 5 in Europe, there are the Botanical Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle in Merano. The Touriseum is also located in the gardens.

You can travel to Renon either by car or take the cable car from Bolzano. Art within nature… in Pochi di Salorno the artist Taty Borgogno has got her very own sculpture garden with more than 200 pieces, and Arte Sella will impress you too! For those spending a summer holiday in Cortaccia, you should make sure that you plan a trip to Verona and take in an opera at the Arena in Verona.
