Tappeinerweg and Gilf Promenade
An easy stroll, about 2.5 hours, with sweeping views over the roofs of the town of Merano: it’s a South Tyrol classic. The path, which has an average altitude of 380 metres, affords fantastic views of rooftops of the city and sweeping views of the whole area.
From Lagundo/Algund: Branch off to the east from the Rathausplatz (Town Hall Square) in Lagundo/Algund onto the Via Strada Vecchia/Alten Landstraße Street, next to the cemetery on the left, cross the creek and along the Riomolino/Mühlbach to the cemetery. Making a left from Valserstraße Street, enter the stunning Tappeiner Promenade, with its Mediterranean plant life. Stroll along the Monte di Merano/Küchelberg to Merano’s gorge, called gola della Gilf/Gilfschlucht, for a walk in summer or winter, then down the Passer Promenade to Piazza Teatro/Theaterplatz square. From the main street, Via delle Corse/Rennweg, in the city centre you can take the No. 11 or 13 bus, or the Velloi/Vellau Bus back to Lagundo.
