From a sun-drenched plateau overlooking the Italian Dolomites, the Soprabolzano area is one of South Tyrol’s hidden treasures. First, stop at the provincial capital of Bolzano, easily reachable via the new Renon aerial tram. A year-round destination, in summer take an outing to the Rittner Horn and enjoy a breathtaking panorama of the mountain range, while in winter take advantage of Rittner Horn’s 15km of snow-covered slopes.

Visit the 13th century church of Giacomo which boasts beautiful painted ceilings, or embrace your sweet side with a visit to the bee museum in Costalovara at the 500-year old Plattnerhof farm. Then, buzz your way over to the San Genesio forests or the Renon Hills for some crisp, Alpine air. With its wide meadows, fields and scenic mountain farms in full view of the Dolomites, Soprabolzano is truly a breathtaking experience.
