Experience South Tyrol. Jump into your hiking boots and out into nature. Merano is surrounded by a multifaceted landscape with cypresses in the valley and edelweiss in the mountains. Equally diverse are the possibilities for exercise, play, exploration, and adventure.
AS HEARTY AS A BELLY LAUGH… AS FLAVORFUL AS A MEAL
