The Audi A5 is not just a style icon, it also stands for being on the road. It exudes the feeling of freedom and independence in combination with sportiness and elegance, including when travelling through the South Tyrolean Alps. The peaks of the Dolomites slowly emerge when driving through the Brenner Pass. They are among the most impressive sights in the Alps. Huge stone colossi reach into the sky with bizarre rock formations. The summits are ranged majestically together - including Marmolada, Schlern, Langkofel, Sella and the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. The architect Le Corbusier described the giants once as "the most beautiful construction in the world". Their imposing appearance seems to inspire more and more builders in the present time, because modern architecture, whose pioneers include Corbusier, is becoming increasingly prevalent in the Alps. Wood and stone are typical construction materials, like steel, concrete, and glass. South Tyrol cities like Brixen, Bolzano or Merano are a good starting point for viewing such impressive constructions. These include the Forst brewery with their new brewhouse, the Margreid firehouse that was built into rock, the Perathoner woodcarving decorated with shingles, the Mirror Houses, and the Timmelsjoch pass museum in the oversized form of a boulder.
