Daffodils and apple blossom – springtime in Bressanone
Chirping birds and blooming trees herald the return of spring. Come and experience the beauty of South Tyrol as nature reawakens!
Come March, Bressanone is already enjoying the spring awakening with pleasant, mild temperatures and lots of sunshine. The first daffodils bloom, and the apple trees don their delicate pink outfit… This is the perfect time for a walk on the beautiful valley and low-mountain paths! A number of hiking trails start in the immediate vicinity of Residence Nives. Take a walk through the liverleaf-dotted vineyards around Novacella, or immerse yourself in a sea of apple blossom on the Naz-Sciaves plateau. You are in for a real treat!
A great start to the spring
Al fresco aperitifs. A sea of lights in May. Enjoy the spring charm of Bressanone!
The whole town of Bressanone is in bloom. And what a sight! Take off your jacket and enjoy a cup of tea or an aperitif out in the sunshine. Go for a stroll down the arcades and soak up the atmosphere! On May evenings, the historical centre transforms into a sea of lights with the Water Light Festival: colourful light installations around the town will turn your sightseeing tours into a magical experience.
Sunny skies and mild temperatures – the perfect weather for a ride across the Eisacktal valley!
Take one of your bikes and saddle up! The Brennero-Bolzano cycle path leads right past Residence Nives. Heading south, you will reach Chiusa in about one hour. This medieval town definitely deserves a visit. Park your bike and take a stroll down the winding alleys – you won’t regret it! If you are sporty, you can pedal all the way to Bolzano and hop on a train for your return trip. Back at Residence Nives, you can wash your bike and park it safely in our lockable garage.
A springtime cultural tour
Cloisters, castles, museums... a discovery tour of South Tyrol’s artistic and historical treasures
A short walk from Residence Nives is the largest monastery in Tyrol. The Novacella/Neustift monastery is an impressive complex that includes a library, garden and winery. Or why not take a tour around the gigantic labyrinth of rooms, corridors and stairs of the Franzensfeste fortress, once the strongest fortress in Europe. Alternatively, you could travel back to prehistoric times on the Archeo Trail, which leads through the vineyards around Bressanone to the hamlet of Elvas. Take a train to Bolzano and visit the Museum of Archaeology to meet Ötzi, the world-famous Iceman that attracts thousands of visitors every year. The icing on the cake? Your complimentary BrixenCard gives you free admission to more than 90 museums in South Tyrol!
