Conveniently situated, Bolzano is easily accessible by rail, road and air. Bolzano is a role model as a green city. Within the city, any destination can be easily reached on foot or bicycle (54 kilometers of bicycle lanes) in a short time.
Bolzano is located at one of the most important European traffic arteries for passenger and goods transport, the Brenner route. The first roads were already built in the Roman Age (Pons Drusi = Bolzano). Thanks to this particularly favorable geographic location, Bolzano has become one of the most important trading posts in the Alpine region.
Today, Brenner Pass still is the busiest transport corridor of the entire Alps. The railroad across the Brenner is used by around 200 trains per day and thousands of cars and trucks travel on the A 12 Brenner highway, which may raise environmental problems. Nevertheless, road and rail connections are very good and work efficiently.
