Sleeping

The Weinstrasse is not a budget destination (for that you'll need to stay in Bolzano and day-trip down here), but the hotels here usually offer a lot in terms of comfort, facilities and service. For smaller B&Bs, see www.weinstrasse.com for a list.

Eating

Restaurants and wine bars line the Weinstrasse, including very good hotel dining rooms; menus have an emphasis on superseasonal produce and there's a lighter hand than up in the mountains. Don't miss the local speciality of apple fritters.
