Top Events in South Tyrol

South Tyrol offers a large number of interesting events throughout the year that you shouldn’t miss.

In South Tyrol, every year begins with the traditional New Year's Eve concerts and ends with the BOclassic, the prestigious New Year's Eve road running competition in the centre of Bolzano. In the 365 days between the two dates, the rich event calendar includes a number of not-to-be-missed events with international appeal. From the Alpine Ski World Cup races in the Val Gardena valley and Alta Badia to the summer festivals and autumn celebrations such as the Speck Festival and the Merano Grape Festival, we present an overview of the most important events of the year.

If you don't want to miss any event, always check our event calendar!
