  Piazza Walther/Waltherplatz
by GentleSpirit

At the very center of town in the Piazza Walther/Waltherplatz, named after the lyric poet Walther von der Vogelweide (c. 1170 ? c. 1230). The statue is the work of Heinrich Natter (1889)
I wasn't entirely clear what/if any connection Herr Walther had to the area/region. His place of birth or origin isn't known though scholars figure he was from out in the country, presumably a place where falconry was practiced. His name means "field of birds"

This is generally the place to meet in Bolzano, There are some nice restaurants around the Piazza

Address: right in the center of bolzano
