Spring in Bolzano: wine, flower and art for a new start

Bolzano, the gateway to the Dolomites, is a colorful place in spring!

Longer days, the desire for fresh air, walks through the scents of plants, along a stream or among blossoming orchards are the ingredients of spring in Bolzano. A perfect season to get on your bike. What could be better than pedaling along apple orchards in bloom! The city of Bolzano offers a rich calendar of events and initiatives that invite you to spend your days in the city. Many opportunities to enjoy the light and at the same time suggestive atmosphere of spring.

Spring in Bolzano is enriched by the new event Bolzano In Fiore Arte/Kunstgarten Bozen. The old town center and the city come alive with eleven contemporary art installations, impressive floral decorations and a top-class programme of dance, music and theatre.  The festival will conclude on 30 April with the traditional Flower Festival in Piazza Walther. Spring in Bolzano ends with the events in June, in particular Castelronda, a day dedicated to discovering the castles of Bolzano and its surroundings.

Don't waste time and book a spring holiday!

Experience the Middle Ages with all your senses. The castle festival lends a fairytale feel to Bolzano's summer.

The castle landscape around Bolzano invites you to stroll around and discover its treasures. Even more so on the occasion of Castelronda, when the most beautiful castles in and around Bolzano open their doors to visitors and reveal all their secrets in courtyards, dungeons and towers... Bolzano and Appiano/Eppan are the first locations involved in the initiative, with 6 castles and ruins to visit, 6 programmes and 6 unique experiences to live a dive into the past.

Runkelstein Castle, the ruins of Rafenstein Castle just above Bozen, Hocheppan Castle, Boymont Castle, Trostburg Castle and Festenstein are brought back to life by historical re-enactments with ladies and knights. Guided tours and excursions are also on the programme.

ATTENTION! In the event of bad weather the events at Festenstein Castle will be cancelled.
