Some 1,900 m above sea level and 12 m above the grounds - this must be great. And it truly is! Italy’s longest Alpine coaster is a must for young and old. Where to find it? High above the spa town of Merano, at the heart of the skiing and hiking area Merano 2000. The Alpin Bob Merano 2000 actually features a length of 1.1 km and keeps its doors open in winter and summer alike. The start is easily accessible: starting in Merano, a bus takes you to the valley station of the Falzeben cable car, and within few minutes after the funicular ride you will stand in front of Italy’s longest Alpine coaster.
