A few hiking and walking tips from us:
The Tappeinerweg Trail in Merano
The Tappeinerweg Trail in Merano (Meran) is one of Europe’s most beautiful elevated promenades. The trail nestles amidst Mediterranean and Alpine plants, and offers a unique view across the rooftops of the spa town and the fertile slopes of the Adige (Etsch) River valley. In addition to being Merano’s longest walkway, the trail is also the city’s most beloved promenade. The Tappeinerweg Trail in Merano is named for its creator, Franz Tappeiner, an esteemed physician and botanist who worked hard for the welfare of the spa town and its inhabitants.
The promenade, which has only a few gentle gradients, hugs the slopes of Küchelberg Mountain; it runs from the village of Quarazze (Gratsch) in the west to Monte San Zeno (Zenoberg) in the east.
More tips from us:
The Lagundo Waal Path, Marlengo Waal Path, Maiser Waal Path, Riffiano Waal Path and for the more adventurous: the "Meraner Waalrunde", which connects 11 Waal Paths.
Merano 2000 is a genuine paradise for hikers and walkers
Especially in summer when the alpine roses are blooming, and can be accessed directly from Merano using the new cable car.
Countless marked hiking trails over the broad alpine pastures of the Hafling plateau bring you to the Kesselberg, Mittager and Meraner Huts, from where you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Dolomites, the Ortler group of mountains and the Merano mountains. Nordic walking and mountain biking are also good for the circulation and immune system. Paragliding and tandem flights promise further highlights.
Relaxation and recuperation at lofty heights
Altitude approx. 1250 – max. 2900 m
The "Meraner Höhenweg" (Merano High Altitude Trail; northern and southern routes) offers multi-day hikes through the Texel Group national park. The European Long-Distance Hiking Trail (E5 from Lake Constance – Bolzano – Venice) also takes you through our region, from the Timmelsjoch to Moos and St. Leonhard in Passeier, then onwards to the Pfandler Alp (1345 m), the Hirzer Hut (2050 m) and Lake San Pancrazio and as far as the Meraner Hut (1960 m). It continues on to Langfenn (1525 m) as far as the village of Jenesien, and from there down into Bolzano.
A thing of splendour in itself is the UNESCO WORLD NATURAL HERITAGE SITE OF THE DOLOMITES, which is paradise for all motorcyclists. We’re keeping a secure parking place for your bike in our underground garage!
