Climate

It’s alpine, but the characteristics are not uniform. The two main cities (Trento and Bozen) are characterized by a high thermal excursion: Bozen, in particular, is one of the hottest cities in Italy as the temperature can go beyond 35°C during summer; during winter it can reach -5°C.

For the rest it really depends on the conformation of the different valleys. Val Pusteria (where Brunek and Dublach are located) for example is quite cold even during summer.
