The project reorganizes the area around the train station due to its relocation closer to the city Centre. It involves the redesign of the station and all the infrastructural components such as , main crossing points for cars, pedestrians, bicycles and trains as well as the integration to several. At the same time the area in front of the old train station will be free up thus allowing the introduction of new programs with new activities for the town. The proposal uses this space to create a unique “Innichen showcase” where local products like bacon, mineral water, felt, linen, etc. are to be display. This territory works as a transition area and attraction for visitors and residents from the north of the municipality and beyond.
