The must-sees on the high mountain plateau

Culture vultures looking for something contemporary may visit one of the many events on Ritten, including the popular 'Rittner Sommerspiele' summer series of performances. The Ritten cable car will quickly whisk passengers down to the nearby capital of Bozen. In South Tyrol the lines between the urban and the rural are wonderfully blurred …
