Explore Meran on foot

The Tappeinerweg trail is one of the most beautiful elevated promenades in Europe

Numerous walkways lead through the garden city of Meran, past art nouveau villas, monuments and colourful shrubs. Here, where well-heeled spa guests once strolled, the flair of times long past still resonates today – especially on the Tappeinerweg trail, which leads from the town centre over four kilometres on the slopes of the Küchelberg hill to Gratsch/Quarazze.

The sunny elevated promenade was funded by the Vinschgau valley spa doctor, anthropologist and botanist Franz Tappeiner and offers wonderful views over Meran and the entire Burggrafenamt area all year round. The path is lined with native and Mediterranean plants, which give the feeling of strolling through a park.

The best way to reach the Tappeinerweg trail is via the Gilfpromenade along the Passerschlucht gorge: the picturesque walkway, punctuated by subtropical vegetation and romantic park benches with engraved poems, winds its way up to the Pulverturm bergfried, joining the Tappeinerweg trail there.
