Bolzano is a shopping and commercial city: In the arcades long-established family-run shops and boutiques offer South Tyrolean clothing, designer clothing and handicrafts. The legendary Saturday market is also a fashionable location for shopping. A large number of coffee shops and restaurants tempt shopping visitors to take a break over an Italian coffee, a refreshing aperitif, or delicious meals.
Thanks to being an interface of two cultures, Bolzano also established itself as a vibrant commercial town: German and Italian speaking companies appreciate the bilingual inhabitants and use South Tyrol as a bridge.
