Hiking in South Tyrol starts with the first warm rays of sun in March. The Texelgruppe Nature Park and the Sarntal Alps offer rich opportunities for hiking...
Located at the bottom of the Texelgruppe Nature Park and nestled among vineyards and apple orchards, Merano/Meran lies in the Val d’Adige/Etschtal Valley, flanked by high Alpine valleys such as Val Passiria/Passeiertal, Val d’Ultimo/Ultental and Val Senales/Schnalstal.
The diverse local landscape is an ideal setting for a variety of activities for the entire family and for summer holidays in South Tyrol/Südtirol, from the valley to the glacier. While summer temperatures prevail in town, the mountains are pleasantly mild. The mild temperatures are perfect for walking and cycling from spring until fall.
Lush parks such as the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle, as well as tranquil spots along the water, offer the chance to relax in nature. There is no shortage of enjoyment on a summer holiday in South Tyrol. In the mountain inns and restaurants, traditional Tyrolean dishes are served, while the restaurants, pubs and bistros in the city also serve Italian food and drinks.
