Falzeben - Merano 2000

High above the rooftops of Merano, Falzeben is the entry point to the popular Merano 2000 Skiing and Hiking Area

It is the local recreation area for the people of Merano, the sports zone for the people of Avelengo, the hiking and skiing area for the guests: We are talking about Merano 2000 above the villages of Avelengo. At its foot are the few buildings that make up the district of Falzeben. One of them houses the gourmet restaurant listed in the Gault Millau gourmet guide, another the valley station of the Merano 2000 Cable Car. From there the yellow gondolas start, which then head uphill towards Mt. Piffinger Köpfl, where hiking paths, MTB trails and ski slopes start.

Those who do not want to use the cable car can start their excursion at the car park next to it. Ideal destinations are the various mountain huts and alpine pastures in this area, including the Moschwald Hut and the Waidmann Hut. Most of them are farmed and offer hearty specialities in a unique landscape. In addition, a section of the European long-distance hiking trail E5 passes by here. If you are not satisfied with that, you can conquer Mt. Ivigna from Avelengo, the local mountain of the area. From Scena, a via ferrata leads up to the peak.

A special experience awaits young and old on the heights of Merano 2000: the Alpin Bob. It is a year-round toboggan run on rails. The ride is in complete safety, you can control the speed yourself - and yet it is an experience full of adrenaline when you rush down the mountain in all seasons, overcoming curves and bridges. In some parts you are 12 metres above the ground.
