We all face extraordinary challenges at the moment. If we pull together, we can overcome them. Luckily, South Tyroleans have always excelled at pulling together. Ultimately, it is that team spirit that will get us back to an easier way of life.

We already look forward to living our lives free from worries again. South Tyrol has so much to offer in extraordinary and normal times alike: sweeping Alpine pastures, tranquil summits, hidden places of power, unparalleled food and the freshest air you can imagine.

In the meantime, we are working tirelessly as one to make all these popular places safe for visitors so that we can enjoy them together again soon.
