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 Merano, there are several approaches to the Tappeinerweg: going up the steep path called the Tiroler Steig behind Merano’s parish church, from Via Galileo Galilei/Galileistraße road by the valley station for the Küchelberg chair lift, up the steep path called the Schlehdorfsteig off of Via Giuseppe Verdi/Verdistraße street, and from the Castel San Zeno/Zenoburg, past the Polveriera/Pulverturm Tower.

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.
