What to do in Bolzano when it rains

by Matilde

The average temperatures in Bolzano vary drastically. Considering the humidity, the temperatures feel cold for about half of the year and however nice with a low probability of rainfall for most of the year. The area is rather temperate – in the 43rd percentile for pleasant climatic conditions – compared to tourist destinations all over the world. If you are looking for the warmest  moment  to visit Bolzano, the hottest months are July, August and June. The warmest period of the year is generally the middle of July, where the peaks are regularly around 88.6 ° F (31.4 ° C) with temperatures that rarely fall below 17.4 ° C (17.4 ° C) C) during the night.


BOLZANO / Bolzano is a beautiful city (and there is also the interesting museum of the ice mummy Oëtsi), and so it is BRESSANONE / Brixen, which is also close to a beautiful castle and ancient monastery (Abbey of Novacella). And also MERANO is a very nice place (and the nearby gardens of Trauttmansdorf), or even the ancient “Collegiate” of SAN CANDIDO .

And certainly there are other places in the area. So it’s up to you, surely Bolzano or Bressanone or Merano (Merano is perhaps the most beautiful city – but a little further away for the Dolomites) are a better base of Ortisei to visit the lower places of the valley, which you can also enjoy with bad weather.
