Hike on the Meadow Path near Scena

In April, when the apple trees are in full bloom, this comfortable circular walk along the Meadow Path near Scena is more than ideal.

Our starting point for this walking tour is the junction to Scena on the road to Avelengo. To the left the Meadow Path ("Alte Strasse") branches off and winds up the hill, through fruit orchards and vineyards. After about 1 km (at the level of the Eschenlohe Hotel) we keep right and follow first the Scena road and then the marker "San Giorgo" (St. Georgen).

Past a viewpoint we reach the idyllic village of San Giorgo with the famous round church. Now we are at 700 m a.s.l., the highest point of our tour today. Afterwards we walk downhill: The path winds through fruit groves towards north and crosses the road to Verdins. Past Thurn Castle - surrounded by blooming apple trees - we proceed further to Scena (Schenna), where the Meadow Path leads us right through the village centre (here also marked with 10 A) and proceeds until the south westerly hill, which we walk along back to the junction to Scena, our starting point.

The Meadow Path - "Sentiero dei Prati" in Italian, "Wiesenweg" in German" - especially in spring is a comfortable walking tour, with lots of gorgeous views on Merano and surroundings. As it is a circular route it can be started at any point along the path. Ideal in spring and autumn, not recommended on hot summer days!
