Culture: Expansion of our consciousness
Art: too good not to share
The cultural life in and around Bolzano is just as varied, surprising, and exciting as the landscape itself. In spring and summer, the city slowly awakens and welcomes fans of music, culture, and sports with a rich programme of events in the most beautiful places the city and its surroundings have to offer. We’re happy to reveal our favourite events to you!

Nature becomes a stage – and jazz part of the landscape. Soloists and ensembles venture to lofty heights, historic old towns, and secluded villages to enchant us with their sound. Where and when? Throughout South Tyrol, usually at the end of June for about ten days.
