Merano & surroundings

Mediterranean atmosphere, a genuine Alpine landscape and a varied cultural offer - that’s the holiday area of Merano and surroundings.

The surroundings of Merano, that's to say the surroundings of the spa town between Nalles and Naturno, 30 km apart, are highly diversified. The mild climate make palm trees, cypresses, grapevines and olive trees flourish, surrounded by a rather alpine landscape with the rough mountain peaks of the Tessa Group where the famous Sopranes Lakes are located.

Also the spa town itself is multifaceted, standing out due to its wide range of offers regarding theatre, movies, music and exhibitions the whole year round. For those who love sports, there are competitions in the Merano-Maia Racecourse, the MeranArena with its swimming pool, the famous Thermal Baths, and of course the Merano 2000 skiing area. By the way: The village of Avelengo near Merano is the home of the Haflinger horses, the famous blond horse breed.
