Exciting cultural events

Anyone looking for a muse will find their inspiration in South Tyrol. The annual Meran music weeks which rank among Europe’s most important classical music festivals are just one example. The funky jazz rhythms emanating from the leading hotels in town are also a big draw. The region’s theatres put great emphasis on staging and acting of high quality, recruiting young talent which they find in the many backstreet theatres of South Tyrol. Those thirsting for knowledge should go to the local museums – especially to the South Tyrolean Museum of Archaeology which accommodates a sensational treasure:  Oetzi, the man from the Ice Age. The New York Times ranks this exhibit as one of the top ten in Europe.
