Holidays in Scena

Scena/Schenna is surrounded by magnificent summits and countless hiking trails of all difficulty levels. Hiking areas include the Ifinger peak, Mount Hirzer and the awe-inspiring Merano 2000 mountain plateau. The vegetation in the center of Scena varies considerably, with palm and cypress trees growing at 600m a.s.l. in contrast with the alpine mountain climate in the village of Videgg at 1,536m a.s.l.. Scena is located beneath Schenna Castle with the famous Archduke Johann Mausoleum. Like the Empress Sissi, the aristocrat loved spending his summers in the hills above the spa town of Merano/Meran.

From easy walks along the old irrigation channels and hikes up to mountain huts, through the forests and meadows or high-altitude trails in the Sarntal Alps, Scena is a perfect departure point for a wide range of outdoor activities. Thanks to five cableways and two chairlifts, the hiking areas above Scena are also accessible on foot as well. There are numerous restaurants, mountain huts, and shelters welcoming hikers at various altitudes, with authentic South Tyrolean hospitality, traditional hearty Tyrolean meals, and sophisticated local culinary delights.

Scena’s privileged position brings together an undeveloped rural environment with the convenience of proximity to an urban center and its rich cultural life. In Scena itself, rural traditions continue to predominate, with agriculture and farming remaining the mainstay of the local economy. In the fruit orchards, there are around 800,000 trees covering 300 hectares of land, all following the strict standards of integrated production yielding first-grade produce. Nearly 70 farmers are involved in animal husbandry, with about 1,500 heads of cattle and other livestock. The contribution of the mountain farmers is crucial – in addition to high quality crops and produce they also look after and maintain the land that is shared by visitors and locals for recreational purposes.
