On the Tschögglberg plateau/Altipiano del Salto above the spa town of Merano/Meran there are sprawling larch forests and meadowlands stretching as far as the eye can see. Away from the busy holiday centers, in Avelengo/Hafling, Verano/Vöran and the Merano 2000 ski and hiking area you can peacefully enjoy nature face to face. The moderate all year round temperatures ensure outdoor enjoyment when hiking, horse-riding and skiing, surrounded by breath-taking mountain panoramas at 360°.
Get to know more about the territory and its inhabitants by stopping over at one of the inns or mountain huts. Open rye bread with local speck and other traditional toppings are enjoyed while the locals distract themselves playing card games. The cultural attractions including the Knottnkino rock cinema and the St. Kathrein Church on the Avelengo – Verano – Merano 2000 mountain plateau reflect the important role that the mountain and Christianity play in the lives of the local inhabitants.
