The Spa town of Merano is a prime meeting-place for those who love the Mediterranean atmosphere. The mild southern climate combined with numerous castles and fortresses as well as its proximity to the snow-capped peaks rising to over 3000 meters above sea level, all contribute to making Merano a very attractive leisure destination.
Whether it's about a ride on the Haflinger horses at Easter time or the October Grape festival, the end of summer Music Week, the Merano International Wine Festival in November or Advent in Merano just before Christmas, the town welcomes visitors to observe, participate and to experience it at first-hand.
There are the all year round attractions at the Merano Arte, the art gallery containing works of contemporary art, while the Merano Thermal Baths and Trauttmansdorff Gardens, are known to be among the most beautiful in Italy. Imagine the sensation of walking under the magic arches of old Merano combined with an elegant shopping experience all in the cultural atmosphere of the Belle Epoque. Such experiences will be a true balm for your body and spirit.
The surrounding area close to Merano offers various attractions that are not to be missed. There's the Tirol Castle in the town of Tirolo, which is also of historical importance in the wider region. Due to its convenient location, just off the Venosta Valley, Passiria, Senales and Ultimo Valley, Merano is the ideal starting point for excursions, such as on the sunny high plateau of Montezoccolo, across which a special bus line for hikers covers the route between Avelengo, Verano, and Meltina. This leads to the varied and beautiful Tessa Group Nature Park, which stretches from the Senales and Passiria Valley up to the main Alpine mountain chain. Or to Merano 2000, a paradise for hiking and ski lovers as well as for those who just wish to enjoy the sun and can be easily reached by cable car near the city.
