Shopping in Lana and Environs

Shopping in Lana and Environs

Lana perfectly mixes rural and urban environments. The relaxed shopping atmosphere in the pedestrian zone combines with Piazza Tribus/Tribusplatz square and Via Bolzano/Boznerstraße street, which buzzes with commercial activity. Local handicrafts can also be purchased at various shops in the town center as well as at local markets. These include goods made of apple wood, walnut, stone, glass, wax and the felt for which Lana is famous.

Being one of the best developed and vibrant municipalities in the area, Lana offers locals and visitors alike an urban centre in rural environments. With its more than 150 shopping hotspots this widespread municipality does not have one big shopping centre but many smaller ones.

Open air Shopping
South Tyrol neither has huge shopping malls nor large farms. That is no coincidence! Organic growth and small quality-oriented companies are appreciated and "pleasure shopping" is very popular among people. For a good shopping experience in South Tyrol you will need time to stroll along the village centres and enjoy the atmosphere.
