Sulden Ski Information
Nearby, the town of Bolzano is a busy tourist resort in both winter and summer. Its pavement cafes, and generally relaxed pace of life, make it a good place to rest up or use as a base for trips into the mountains. An sure pleasure, is the local wine, as Bolzano is at the head of the wine road (Strada di Vino/Sudtiroler Weinstrasse), which runs south to the border with Trentino, especially well known for its Chardonnay For sightseeing there is the Duomo (Dom), on the edge of the square, and built in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The fourteenth-century Franciscan church on Via dei Francescani is also worth seeking out, embellished with a carved wooden altarpiece by Hans Klocher and with elegant, frescoed cloisters from the same period. On the west side of the old town stands one of Alto Adige's more important museums, the recently opened Museo Archeologico. Via Museo is a good source of decent local restaurants. The Weisse Traube (Uva Bianca) offers a good-value set lunch. Hopfen, a restaurant on the corner of the fruit market at Piazza Erbe, is highly recommended for its beer brewed on the premises, and huge plates of meaty Tyrolean specialties. If you are into meeting other fun-loving young people, it might be worthwhile visiting Nadamas, a Latin-themed bar.

From the three night clubs in this area, you might want to visit the inevitable Irish pub, Pogue Mahone's, first. The pub offers all the traditions that you will associate with a traditional Irish Pub. The food is good and the beer, on tap, even better. Casanova, next door the Pogue Mahone's, offers the latest in dance music and the crowd is young and energetic. The Cavallino Bianco (Weisses Rossel), is a bierkeller with a menu heavy on Tyrolean specialties. Batzenhausl, an old wine bar with a lively atmosphere, is good too. You can also try Lowengrube, a bierlokal with good food and Weiss bier on tap.
