Spring in Naturno

Where spring begins earlier

The Merano Spring event series embraces the beauty of nature in Merano and the surrounding area:
Now that nature is awakening from its winter slumber, the first colourful flowers are blooming and the warm rays of the sun are once again tempting visitors to take walks and hikes in nature, the spa town of Merano and its neighbouring villages of Naturno, Scena, Lagundo and Parcines invite visitors to flower festivals and markets, hikes and special events.
The magnificent gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle open their gates again and invite visitors to stroll through the colourful, diverse gardens, the apple blossom bathes the surrounding area in a white and pink sea of blossoms and the Merano Flower Festival in Merano impresses with flower installations and plant figures in the already imposing spa town, where Empress Sissi already spent her holidays.
Spring in Naturno is an experience for all the senses

After a cold winter, we look forward to spring all the more: nature goes full throttle, it begins to blossom, smell and sprout. The warming sun attracts colourful flowers and bright buds. In Naturno we welcome spring on 25.03. with our spring festival. Local farmers invite you to taste their products, gardeners present their decorations and spring flowers, craftsmen sell their products made with love. The farmers' wives feed visitors with local specialities and a band frames the festival with traditional music.


The day after the spring festival we open the hiking season on the Monte Sole/Sonnenberg. Due to the sunny location, the mountain season in Naturno starts earlier than elsewhere. Together with the mountain farmers we celebrate the new season on the Merano High Trail, on this day the Unterstell cable car can be used free of charge and the mountain farmers give rare insights into their lives, traditions and everyday life. Another highlight is the culinary offer: the mountain huts will spoil you with tasty dishes from the region.
