The spa town of Merano/Meran and its surrounding villages offer exciting excursion destinations for families with children also during winter. The Naturno swimming pool complex and Terme Merano thermal baths offer a welcome change from the ski slopes. The mild winter temperatures in town are perfect for leisurely walks, also suitable for prams, and there are two different ice skating rinks in town. A popular winter excursion for families with children is a visit to the indoor climbing walls of South Tyrol/Südtirol.
The museums around Merano also offer an alternative to the slopes, and are open on weekends during the winter. The Archaeological Museum in the South Tyrolean capital of Bolzano/Bozen, the Train Museum in the village of Rablà/Rabland and the Typewriter Museum in the village of Parcines/Partschins offer child-friendly information on the local history and culture of the region.
