The municipality of Verano is located at the Monzoccolo, the low mountain ridge between Bolzano and Merano.
Verano, comprising the localities of Eschio, Hinterkofl, Unterdorf and Leadner alpine pasture, stretches on the sun-drenched elevation of the Monzoccolo at 1,204 m, between the cities of Bolzano and Merano. The municipality has got some 900 inhabitants and can be reached via Meltina or Avelengo, as well as a funicular from Postal.
Tranquillity and nature prevail in the village. The area round Verano invites you to go hiking, for instance to the so-called Knottnkino. In this natural cinema you can take a seat and enjoy the silent film of nature, which is really admirable.
Verano is also a combination of history and present day: at the Monzoccolo hay roofs on single barns remember the Bajuwaric origins, while at the alpine pasture of Verano you can admire the largest photovoltaic plant of South Tyrol.
Our tip: a cable-car ride from Postal to Verano, visiting the S. Anna chapel in Eschio.
