Avelengo di Sopra

The Moschwald Mountain Hut is located above Avelengo di Sopra in larch meadows, a sunny spot with a wonderful view

Avelengo di Sopra (Hafling Oberdorf), as the name suggests, is situated a little above the village of Avelengo and is the only enclosed district of the municipality. It came into being after the road from Merano to Avelengo was built, i.e. a few decades ago. In the years before 1980, the villages on the slope, such as Santa Caterina, were only accessible with difficulty via a stone slab path.

Especially if you appreciate nature, Avelengo di Sopra is a little paradise. Hikes, bike tours and walks show you the surroundings on pleasant paths, and the spa town of Merano can be reached quickly by bus. One of the most popular tours, the one to the Moschwald Hut, offers something in every season. In spring, the meadows show themselves in the most beautiful blossom, in summer the shady forests provide refreshment and in autumn beautiful photos are possible: Then the larches begin to change colour, turning the landscape into yellow, orange and bronze shades.

Winter in Avelengo di Sopra is popular because of its proximity to Falzeben, where the cable car to the Merano 2000 Ski Area starts. However, ski area is a term that does not encompass everything that awaits you. In addition to the slopes, there is a sledge run, winter hiking trails, the Outdoor Kids Camp Merano 2000 and the "Alpin Bob" Alpine Coaster. It stands for action and fun, as it whizzes down from the mountain station to the valley and takes you on a real adrenaline ride between curves and bridges. An exciting experience that is also offered in summer months.
