Monte San Zeno

Monte San Zeno - a hamlet, not a component locality - is situated underneath the village of Tirolo, on the slope that is oriented towards Merano.

High above the roofs of the city of Merano, there is a rock spur named Monte San Zeno. This is also where the homonymous castle is located, which is a castle complex that has been constructed by the Romans. Once in this place there was the “Castrum Maiense”, which refers to the original centre of Merano and which is also name-giving for the city.

Here, at the entrance of the Val Passiria, directly on the slopes above Merano, you can enjoy a charming view on the thermal city and the Valle dell’Adige. Only a stone’s throw from Monte San Zeno, there is the famous Gilf promenade, which is a popular promenade. At the Torre Polveriera tower, this promenade joins the Tappeiner promenade, which takes to the city centre of Merano. For this reason Monte San Zeno is also ideal for a getaway to the city of Merano.
