& vibrant

Carters and wood traders, carpenters, and shoemakers worked and lived in the house at Dr.-Streitergasse n° 31 in the center of Bolzano. For centuries, the building has overflowed with life and variety. Johann Mayr bought the building in 1921: since then, it has been in the family's possession and continues to grow, not in size, but in life. Since 2015, the building has been filled with warm hospitality and travelers can find the relaxation they are seeking in the cozy apartments. In 2021, the family also took over the restaurant, Bogen bistro & apartments comes into being.
Today's Dr. Streitergasse is mentioned for the first time in a document: located in what was then the outskirts of the city of Bolzano, the Mistgasse (German for Dung Alley) was still frowned upon.
The Mistgasse becomes Karnergasse (Carter Alley).
