Hiking in Schenna and environs

The mountains beckon you to come and discover the varied and spectacular region of Merano and Environs, a premium hiking destination. No other hiking area in the Alps comes even close to offering such a variety of excursions for all ages and with a variety of difficulty levels. Discover a fairy-tale land on foot, from the comfortable "Waalwege" (kind of hiking trails along old irrigation channels), through meadows, fields, lush green pastures and quiet forests, right up to the rocky areas at the foot of the mountains. You can also explore the cultural sites of the region throughout the year, following well-marked trails and enjoying bracing mountain hikes at high altitudes, while marveling at the spectacular landscape.

The Hohenwart has, for many years, organized hiking programs for its guests such as weekly excursions and itineraries with Hubert as well as with our hiking guide.

While our mountain guide takes care of the high altitude summer excursions, the children's climbing courses serve to prepare younger mountain enthusiasts. A special excursion awaits you at breakfast-time starting at the Gsteier mountain inn and a shuttle is available for those who prefer a more leisurely excursion. In short, the Hohenwart offers you a custom vacation to best suit your requirements.

Please consult our hiking guide for tips on how to choose your personalized itinerary!

Dream holidays also for small families

We have stayed at Hohenwart for 3 years in a row and again it was outstanding, also with our 16 month old daughter! The food is really excellent. And the offers for toddlers with playground, playroom and swimming pool are really great.
