At higher altitudes, hikers can readily access the Merano High Mountain Trail and the Texelgruppe mountain range. With a height of 97 m, the waterfall near Parcines is one of the most spectacular landmarks in the Alps.
Narrow streets, quaint houses and typical old farmsteads add a characteristic touch to this small village. Peter Mitterhofer, one of its most famous sons, invented the typewriter and has a museum named after him. In nearby Rablà, the Train World Museum houses a scale model of South Tyrol complete with figurines and a working railway system. The Royal & Imperial Bad Egart Museum, with various personal effects belonging to the Royal House of the Habsburgs, is also well worth visiting.
