Südtirol für alle - South Tyrol for all

On the portal every structure published, whether hotel, restaurant or tourist attraction, is evaluated in an objective manner, letting the viewer determine what is really accessible, according to his personal needs and requirements. The careful attention to detail makes the portal an indispensable means for all those who live in South Tyrol or who intend to spend their holidays here. “South Tyrol for all” is not just a rich and useful travel portal, but it is also the official information platform for accessible Tourism in South Tyrol - Dolomites. The team of independent L. provides accessible tourist information, assistance and advice, in order to help guests plan their holiday in South Tyrol as comfortable as possible. The touristic offer includes barrier-free accommodations, restaurants, tourist attractions, sports and leisure, transport accessible to all.
