Summer is over and you didn't find time for holidays? Don’t worry. Autumn is the better choice for an enjoyable and relaxed holiday in Merano anyway - even if it's just a short weekend trip.
In just three days, you can experience all kinds of things in and around Merano.
Walk & Stroll
Make sure you stroll beneath the Meraner Lauben arches
and through the old town. Head for a relaxing walk in the autumn sun along one of the Merano promenades - the Kurpromenade , the Sommerpromenade or the Winterpromenade
. All are very popular and run along the Passer river through the botanical part of the city. The most beautiful promenade in Merano is the Tappeinerweg trail
. This sunny promenade offers a wonderful view over the entire city, which is bathed in a magical light in autumn. Starting from the Pulverturm tower
you can even walk along the Tappeinerweg to Quarazze/Gratsch and from there along the Falknerweg trail to Tirolo/Dorf Tirol or along the Waalweg canal trail to Lagundo/Algund.
The region is known for its extensive hiking trails, which stretch from the valleys to the high summits. In autumn, a wine hike is a good idea, for example along the WeinKulturWeg in Marlengo/Marling
. This four-kilometre circular trail leads along picturesque village roads via the Kellerei Meran winery and the numerous other vineyards where you can sample and buy wine.
In search of the chestnut tree
Another hike that you should definitely add to your list during your autumn holiday in Merano is the Kastanienelebnisweg Chestnut Trail in Foiana/Völlan
, which is a very nice tour for the entire family. Those who walk the chestnut trail will of course also have the opportunity to enjoy chestnuts. But more on this topic later. First, let’s talk about what to do if the weather is poor.
