Bolzano, Italy (1) – Piazza Walther (Day 11 & 12)

Centrally located a few blocks north of the main station, Piazza Walther is the city’s tourist destination.  Surrounded by beautiful buildings and wonderful eateries, this is home to their popular Christmas Market.

The statue of Walther von der Vogelweide sits in the centre of the square.  Our hotel, “Stadt Hotel Citta” is the pink building located on the left.

 

 

A main mode of transportation, a bike parking area sits on the edge of the square.

 

 

Beautiful flowers are still in bloom in September.

 

 

An interesting busker entertains with bells.
