There are many places of interest in Bozen
Those who love art and culture and travel in South Tyrol will pay special attention to Bozen. The first Roman, then Langobardian and Franconian settlement between Talfer and Eisack was given the city right in the late Middle Ages. Impressive town houses grew up in the Renaissance and the Baroque era and still impress us today with their picturesque bay windows, beautiful facades and lighthouses. The old town ensemble of Bozen with its markets and arbor lanes is one of the first impressions when looking for attractions in Bozen. As a guest at the Hotel Kolping, you are so centrally located, that you can easily reach all the important places within easy walking distance.
Sacred art – bourgeois splendor
Probably the most important sight in this cultural historic region is the Gothic parish church from the 14th / 15th century: the Bozner Cathedral. Admirable is its filigreed 62 m tower which stands in the sky. The tomb chapels and the medieval picture cycles on the right long-wall of the nave deserve a closer look. The Dominican church, built around 1275 with its impressive St. John’s chapel, is also worth a visit. Outside of these sacral buildings there is much of the spirit that has been blowing through Bozen for centuries, linking the cultures of the Alpine region, such as Waltherplatz, the fruit market or the Kornplatz around which once the first urban buildings were concentrated.
Museums, promenades and cultural events
Of course the museums also have a lot to offer in Bozen, such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Municipal Museum, where there is a great collection of traditional customs. The idyllic “Wassermauerpromenade” leads directly to the Maretsch Castle. Not to be forgotten at this point is the fact that Bozen has gained a good reputation as venue for concerts and art exhibitions.
