Trekking & Mountaineering
Numerous and pleasant trails in the Merano area for walks and hikes from farm to farm, amid meadows and forests, especially appreciated by families. The typical sentieri delle rogge – the so-called irrigation canal trails – which, even on the warmest days, are very popular hiking destinations. Going to the high mountains, we find the Tessa Group Natural Park, the Stelvio National Park and the Sarentine Alps. If you are experienced hikers, you cannot miss a challenging panoramic hike and mountain excursion!
Attractions & Museums
In case of rain…
… the numerous museums in South Tyrol are worth a visit. Right in the immediate vicinity are the Piccolo Museo, the South Tyrolean Fruit Grower’s Museum and the Foiana Farm Museum. In Merano you cannot miss the Provincial Museum of Tourism near the Gardens of Castel Trauttmansdorff, the Women’s Museum, the Civic Museum or the Viniculture Museum of Rametz Castle, while in Bolzano the Archaeological Museum, where you will find Ötzi the Iceman mummy, the Museum Of Natural Sciences and Museion are true “musts”.
