Winter Holidays In Schenna

Slow Mountain Schenna

Schenna extends the autumn season!
Not only accommodations and cable cars will postpone their winter break this year, but also the mountain hut and alpine pasture hosts will spoil you with South Tyrolean specialities until the beginning of January.


Those who would like to enjoy the mild autumn in Schenna (even in late autumn we often register 20°C and more during the day) can look forward to the "Törggele" season and, after a pleasant walk, let the day come to a pleasant end with "Suser" (the new wine), South Tyrolean dumplings, and roasted chestnuts. From mid-December until the beginning of January, young and old alike will enjoy the ice rink in the village center. In historic cellars and time-honoured buildings, local exhibitors offer - surrounded by the smell of hot steaming wine and gingerbread - South Tyrolean products and traditional handicrafts: ideal souvenirs for your loved ones at home!

This is a wonderful place for a winter walk through the snowy landscape. Breathe in deeply and enjoy nature all around you. The mild climate of Schenna also entices hikers during the winter season. Those who enjoy skiing and toboggan runs will love the sunny and family-friendly ski area Meran 2000. The ski region is situated only 2.4 miles from Schenna. With the mountain cable-car, the skiing area can be reached in only 7 minutes from the valley. Our little guests can avail of the Alpine bob, the natural toboggan run, the "Lucki's Kinderland" with winter kindergarten, as well as the baby lift.

There are cross-country trails, hiking routes, 3 hiring stations, as well as ski and snowboard schools. Guided snow-shoe hiking trips allow you to conquer the winter wonderland in a less noisy way. However, the village of Schenna and the spa town of Merano are also beautifully decorated during the pre-Christmas season. Enjoy the famous Christmas Market.

Ski Resort Merano 2000

The ski area of Merano 2000 offers 25 miles of pure fun on the slopes, mild temperatures, and plenty of places to eat on spacious sun terraces. Skiers, snowboarders, and free riders will find wide runs suitable for all skill levels.

The wild curves of the sledding trail and the Alpine Bob toboggan ride hold great fun in store for groups and families. Those seeking a real athletic challenge can do some ice climbing; paragliding-tandem flights are also offered.

Directly at the mountain terminal, you will find "Lucki's Kinderland", the open-air kindergarten, named after its mascot. At the ski school, kids can take their first steps on skis or a snowboard. There is sufficient space to play and 3 large carpets make the ascent easier for small kids.
The Merano 2000 ski school offer private lessons and group courses throughout the season as well as special courses for children. In addition to skiing technique, instructors also teach snowboarding and disciplines such as New School, in a very engaging way.

Winter Hiking

If you can walk, you also can walk using snow-shoes. No wonder that this sporty walking is becoming more and more of a trend. The Sarntal Valley Alps, high above the holiday village of Schenna, offers the ideal terrain – and many interesting destinations. Explore the Meran 2000 skiing region by foot... on snow-shoes!

Unlimited spaces, undiscovered and hidden from many walkers. On snow-shoes, it is no problem to push straight into the white winter world, which usually only open to skiers. For this type of snow fun, you don't need any know-how – apart from having some experience walking in the Alps, if you want to undertake a longer excursion. In the midst of South Tyrol, there are suitable destinations for beginners, as well as advanced snow-shoe hikers. The slightly steep slopes and sunny high plateaus of the Sarn Valley Alps are ideal to try out your first steps. Basecamp for beginners as well as the advanced in the Meran 2000 skiing region, is the holiday village of Schenna.

If you do not own snow-shoes, you can hire a pair at the mountain terminal at the Piffing Kopfl. A well marked winter hiking network of trails invites you to a variety of tours. If you are interested in a comfortable walk, look out for a walk to one of the huts in the skiing region.

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.
