Merano and environs

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 10,000 ft above sea level, all contribute to make Merano a very attractive leisure destination with many attractions.

Whether it's about the Haflinger horse race at Easter time or the October Grape festival, the Music Week at the end of summer, the Merano Wine Festival in November or the "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.

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.
