Welcome to the wonderful spa town of Merano

The heart of the region

The spa town of Merano knows wonderfully how to give everyone something to remember forever: charming sights, astonishing contemporary and historical architecture, entertaining events or delightful shopping opportunities in stylish boutiques or delicatessens under picturesque arcades.

Mediterranean air, 300 days of sunshine a year, palm trees and olive trees rustling in the wind and, as a contrast, the mountain peaks reaching for the sky do the rest to make the small, fashionable town in the South Tyrolean Burggrafenamt a destination worth visiting and experiencing for holidaymakers from all over the world.

And then you should also treat yourself to a latte macchiato or a Hugo in one of the many street cafés in the sun - that is savoir-vivre in Merano style!


Highlights in and around Merano:

Shopping in the Arcades of Merano

In the town centre of Merano many traditional shops and modern chains are hidden amongst the medieval arcades providing visitors with a unique shopping experience.

Trauttmansdorff Castle

The botanic gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle are irrefutably some of the most beautiful gardens in Europe. More than 12 hectares accommodate 80 landscaped gardens, which are split into four garden worlds: The Sun Gardens, Forests of the World, Water and Terraced Gardens and Landscapes of South Tyrol.

The promenades of Merano

Numerous promenades in Merano invite you to stroll and explore. Take a relaxed stroll along the Kurpromenade (Passerpromenade), Winter Promenade, Summer Promenade, the "Steinegger Steg" or, probably the most famous promenade, the Tappeinerweg.

The Merano Kurhaus

The Merano Kurhaus, located in the heart of town, is one of the most magnificent art nouveau buildings in the entire Alpine region. Today the Kurhaus, with its elegant Kursaal, is a popular venue for cultural events, congresses and sumptuous balls.

More sights around Merano

After the predominantly Italian Bolzano, Merano is the second biggest town in South Tyrol and is heavily influenced by the German-speaking majority. The spa town is wonderfully located in the middle of an awe-inspiring mountain region. The year-round mild climate with over 300 days of sunshine attracts visitors from all over the world - not just hikers and skiers but also admirers of the remarkable old town.

Not only the spa town of Merano, but also the surrounding area offers endless possibilities to spend your holiday in Merano in the most varied way possible.


The picture gallery on the banks of the Passer invites you to linger and marvel. South Tyrol's best artists of the 19th century have left special paintings on the walls. Shady and cool in summer, nice and warm in winter, you can meet here for a coffee and a cosy chat.

A few museum tips from us:

The Touriseum

Don't forget to pay a visit to the wonderfully restored castle with its permanent exhibition on the history of Tyrolean and South Tyrolean tourism. A multimedia exhibition in the "Touriseum" vividly presents the development of tourism in this Alpine region.

Juval Castle displays everything surrounding the "Myth of the Mountain" by means of various art collections. These include Messner's mask collection from five continents, a gallery spanning several floors with images from holy mountains, a Tibetan collection, a Tantra room and the expedition cellar.
