Flanked by the Monta Ivigna and Cervina mountains, the sun-drenched village of Scena is situated on the idyllic south-west slope above Merano.

The municipality of Scena is located at 600 m asl on a panoramic hill rising above the spa town of Merano. It comprises the localities of Verdines, San Giorgio, Talle, Montescena and the main village and includes the territory from the border of the city to the summits of the Monte Cervina and Ivigna in the Sarentino Alps. However, from a former rural village in the countryside, one of the main holidays resorts of South Tyrol developed.
The main sight of the municipality is undoubtedly Castel Scena, constructed around 1350 in the period of Margarete von Tirol. Still today descendants of archduke Johann, whose mortal remains are treasured in the mausoleum of Castel Scena, inhabit the antique murals.
However, also the natural landscape surrounding Scena needs to be experienced. The Roggia di Verdines trail, the Nature Fitness Park Scena-Cervina-Merano 2000 and the high rope course Taser provide, in addition, unforgettable holiday experiences, while in the winter season the nearby Merano 2000 skiing area attracts you to its well-groomed slopes.
