Unique natural wonders near Merano/Meran in South Tyrol

Rare, beautiful and precious: the tallest waterfall in South Tyrol with a drop of almost 100 metres and an especially healthy microclimate, bluish-green mountain lakes, impressive chestnut trees, an ancient grape vine and icy glaciers in the high mountain regions.

In Partschins there are eight special natural phenomena, all of which are protected. They are genuine natural treasures, which, thanks to their rarity, spectacular appearance or aesthetic beauty have been designated as natural monuments in South Tyrol.
The eight unique natural wonders of Partschins can be found down in the valley, up in the mountains, and some in the wild and undeveloped landscape of the Texel Group nature park. As they are ecologically important it is essential to take care of these natural monuments, protect them and preserve their distinctive character.
The natural monuments in Partschins include Partschins Waterfall, the sweet chestnuts at the Happichlhof and Oberweirach Hof, the “Weisser Heunischer” grape vine at the Unterweirachhof, the Tabland Lacken (mountain lakes), the Blaue Lacke (blue lake), the Roteckferner (glacier) and the western Lodnerferner (also a glacier).
They are listed in the official directory of natural monuments in South Tyrol.
