Bürgerzimmer im Hotel Orso Grigio in Innichen

The Bürgerzimmer
as place of encounter

When the borough council met at the Orso Grigio

Innichen/San Candido, South Tyrol, Italy

At the Orso Grigio, the Grey Bear, there is a very special guest lounge which has always been known as the “Bürgerzimmer”.

How it came to that: Before Innichen was formed in 1928, there were actually four communities. The villages of Innichen, Vierschach, Winnebach and Innichberg. The last of these consisted of just 17 hill farms/farming families. For that reason, they didn’t have a dedicated administrative building, instead holding their council meetings in the Bürgerzimmer of the Grey Bear.

Today, this continues to be a place for passionate discussions and thoughts about a better world, though council resolutions are now debated elsewhere.
