Spring, summer, autumn, and winter in Sterzing

Sterzing is a year-round destination for adventure and relaxation. Whether in the snow-covered winter paradise, the blossoming spring, the sunny summer or the colourful autumn.

It's always the best choice

So, where to begin? The best place to start is with the highlight right under your nose: the Zwölferturm clock tower. It is the landmark of Sterzing and separates the new from the old town. It rises 46 metres into the sky and is meant to commemorate its founder, Duke Sigismund the “Rich in Coin”. However, you don’t have to know all about Sterzing’s history to enjoy it. Just come here. Take a look around. Find out for yourself what you like best.

Experience summer outdoors in South Tyrol

Rosskopf is Sterzing’s local mountain, and its cable car valley station is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre. At 2,200 metres above sea level, you have a magnificent view of the surrounding valleys from the summit. But it is not the only mountain that invites you to hike, bike, and climb.

We travel, some of us forever,
to seek other states, 
other lives,
other souls.
