Emerald hills rise all round Bolzano, the threshold between Italy’s Alto Adige province and the high Tyrolean landscapes of Austria, with the trilingual local university setting the scene for Bolzano’s cosmopolitan vibe. Pastel-painted houses sprawl around the cathedral-fronted Piazza Walther, and historic hotels sit in the medieval centre, offering easy access to the Alps that are ripe for hiking in summer and skiing in winter. Find your perfect place to stay among our top picks, bookable on Culture Trip.

Now from $186 per night

A few short steps from the train station in Bolzano – known as Bozen by German-speaking locals – and backing onto tree-shaded spaces, Parkhotel Laurin is an elegant proposition. A genteel old property full of Art Nouveau trim, the hotel has been a firm favourite of Tyrol families since 1910, when the hotel started amassing its impressive collection of original artworks (the framed works in the rooms are the real deal). Rooms are stylish but subtle, with strong colour themes and park or mountain views.

Each room in this artsy hotel was designed by a different artist, giving Hotel Greif a unique atmosphere. Some rooms show the Japanese influence of Hiroko Nakajima-Beckers, others the period leanings of Tyrolean artist Manfred A. Mayr. The hotel’s owner Franz Staffler has created something rather special, and all the rooms have a fascinating mix of period furnishings and modern details. It’s all set in a grand period property near the station.

Framed by four turreted towers, Castel Hörtenberg more than lives up to its name. It’s set in a genuine Renaissance castle from the 15th century, edging onto greenery on the outskirts of the city. The graceful rooms have a modern air, with natural wood panelling, earthy colours and seating areas tucked into the corner towers. Centred on an open-air pool, the garden is wonderfully serene, and the Stube Suite with its wood-panelled lounge and majolica stove is something else.

It’s a love letter to Bolzano history, and a unique place to stay.

A contemporary riposte to the nostalgia of the medieval centre, Four Points by Sheraton is a modernist cube, with smart, modern hotel rooms that make the most of the mountain views through floor-to-ceiling windows. As you climb through the room categories, the floor space grows ever larger and the views more luminous. There are multiple places to eat and drink, as well as a spa – more than sufficient compensation for being a little farther from Bolzano’s historic heart.
