Hiking Trails in Lana and Surroundings near Merano

Walks from between 300 to 3,000 m altitude in Merano and Environs

In the village of Lana and its surroundings near the spa town of Merano/Meran, hikers will find a wealth of possibilities in terms of easy hiking trails. Walks in Lana can be found throughout the municipality. Simple walks and promenades lead along the Sculpture Trail into the Ländpromenade, and into the wild and romantic Gaulschlucht gorge. Also worthwhile is the few kilometer-long Brandis Waalweg trail: a flat running panoramic path alongside the famous South Tyrolean water canals that runs along the mountain above Lana, ending at the Brandis waterfall. In Lana di Sotto/Niederlana, near the ruins of Brandis Castle, is the starting point for hikes to Ackpfeif and the panoramic hill of St. Hippolyt.

  • Barrier-free walkways also ideal for families with buggy
  • Thematic trails in the valley
  • Recreation at mountain Vigiljoch
  • Mountain hikes to mystical places
