Experience the Meran/Merano and environs region

As far as the climate is concerned, the area around Meran is probably the most contrasting in spring: while there is still thick snow on the mountain peaks, you can already sit short-sleeved in the sun on the Meran Passer Promenade. The Texelgruppe range protects the valley basin so well that even apples, wine grapes and palm trees thrive here. How about a visit to one of the world’s most beautiful green spaces? Check out the Gardens of Schloss Trauttmansdorff castle. The castle was once the residence of Meran's most dazzling spa guest, Empress Elisabeth of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Meran's past as a noble spa resort is shown by magnificent buildings like the Belle Époque, which combine harmoniously with the medieval arcades, Schloss Tirol castle and contemporary architecture. Nowadays, you can relax in the Terme Merano, breathe in some of the purest air at the Partschins Falls and hike up the Merano High Mountain Trail. Explore the original side valleys of Passeiertal valley, Schnalstal valley or Ultental valley with their listed farms. Our tip for horse lovers: a ride on a Haflinger horse, the mountain horse that originate from right here.

Shopping in Meran

Hike on winter trails with your boots on or whizz down the immaculately groomed ski runs in Meran's surrounding area in the morning hours and enjoy some afternoon shopping in South Tyrol's cities. Meran has an enchanting old town with many archways and the popular Rennweg and Freiheitsstraße roads. Besides natural alpine cosmetics, you can purchase arts and crafts, local food specialties or walk in fashion boutiques, traditional and sports stores.  When your shopping day has come to an end, you can sit in a cozy pub, restaurant or café.

Where to eat in Meran and environs?

What does your palate crave: starred restaurants or a cuisine among stars? Meran can do both: creative interpretations in a gourmet restaurant, down-to-earth South Tyrolean dishes in a traditional inn or the Alpine pasture. The spa town with its southern flair is sophisticated, people meet for a “caffè al volo”, a quick coffee, or enjoy a relaxed aperitif in the sun. Here, the refreshing “Hugo” is undoubtedly one of them – after all, this cocktail was invented in Naturns/Naturno, next to Meran! Palate pleasures with a panoramic view are available at the numerous Alpine and mountain huts.

Produced in Meran and environs

How about a crisp apple? A glass of wine from the historic organic winery? Speck smoked ham from happy free-range pigs? Or a piece of handmade jewellery from the traditional town jeweller? In the Meran/Merano and environs region, as in the rest of South Tyrol, you will find a wide range of local, high-quality food and handcrafted articles for daily use and art. Lots of producers sell straight from the farm where you can sample the treats and get to know the producers. In this way, you will experience moments of delicious flavour as well as gaining exciting insider knowledge about the cultivation and processing. With a bit of luck, you can even look over the shoulders of craftsmen at work as they create jewellery, wooden sculptures and baskets while strolling through the village or town. Hand craftsmanship has a long-standing tradition in South Tyrol. High quality and durability are the primary factors, which are achieved through the use of proprietary manufacturing techniques and high-quality raw materials. This allows us to create products that are only available here.
