The Brenner Pass was one of the most popular Alpine crossings to arrive from North to South (and back) for centuries. German kings crossed the pass on their way to the imperial coronation in Rome. Writers and novelists crossed it on their travels through Italy. Since decades the boarder and its surrounding villages is a meeting place, a region of the clash of different cultures. Mediterranean influences merge with Tyrolean friendliness, Austrian hospitality with the Italian flair.
Stunning landscapes characterize your way south. Highlights lie still hidden in the cozy side valleys. Just take a look to the Pflerscher Tribulaun and the Obernberger.
