Winter hiking in the mountains and valleys of Merano and Environs

In the dedicated winter sports areas in the mountains, specially prepared winter hiking trails lead through snowy alpine landscapes, whereas the mild Merano basin is free of snow throughout most of the winter. There are numerous hiking trails in and around the town center accessible throughout winter, with pleasant temperatures providing a perfect setting for winter hiking in South Tyrol/Südtirol.

The Waalwege trails, paths leading along the ancient irrigation channels, the Tappeinerweg trail, and the Sommerpromenade and Winterpromenade walking paths through the center of the spa town of Merano/Meran are also perfect for leisurely walks below the picturesque alpine landscape.

In the five ski areas in the region, there are ideal snow hiking trails, with mountain inns along the way. Some of these have also received the Real Quality on the Mountains (Echte Qualität am Berg) award for their high quality local offerings.
