As a renowned spa and garden town, Merano/Meran won the Entente Florale gold award in 2015. Alongside Alpine fir and larch and birch trees, it is also possible to stroll past cypresses, palm and kiwi trees. Well-maintained public parks bring a green environment to the city even in the winter months.
In the 7 Gärten am Kränzelhof (7 Gardens in the Kränzelhof Estate) in the village of Cermes/Tscherms, there is a maze of vines and sculptures by contemporary artists, among other things. Located behind ponds and resting places for meditation is an amphitheater for outdoor concerts. In the herbal garden on the Tappeinerweg trail in Merano, Mediterranean culinary and medicinal plants thrive. Walkers are free to help themselves.
