Easter Monday in Merano? Enjoy a special day in the spa town!
Every year on Easter Monday a special event is scheduled in the city of Merano. Then, a traditional horse racing with the gentle but strong Haflinger horses marks the beginning of the new local racing season.
The Haflinger horses got their name from the pretty South Tyrolean hamlet of Hafling near to Merano, also known as Avelengo in Italian. On Easter Monday they participate in a number of thrilling horse racings as well as in a lovely parade through the town. Moreover you will be offered South Tyrolean delicacies and special shows between the racings.
A great and colourful event indeed… Where exactly? In the hippodrome of Maia Bassa in Merano!
