Active Holidays in Schenna above Meran in South Tyrol

A hiker’s paradise on the sunny plateau of Meran

The area around Schenna/Scena is one of the most attractive and diverse areas for sport and recreation in South Tyrol. This is because Schenna is located across various altitudes. It is thus possible from Spring to Autumn to set out on alpine hikes or also challenging mountain bike tours in the sunny village above the spa town of Meran/Merano. Hospitable family-run businesses with rural charm transform Schenna into the ideal location for a family holiday in Meran and Environs. Rustic alpine huts and mountain inns are a great place to stop for refreshments or a meal. Numerous huts are also open in winter, when the ski area of Meran 2000 opens its lifts for skiers and winter sports enthusiasts.

The hiking trails in Schenna range from simple walking trails such as the Maiser Waalweg and leisurely hikes to mountain pastures and huts up to high-mountain tours and summit ascents in the the Hirzer and Ifinger mountain regions. Five cableways and two chairlifts facilitate the ascent to high mountain trails and Alpine pasture walks.

Mountain bikers can also find a diversified network of well-marked trails in Schenna and the surrounding area. From the gardens in the valley up to the high-Alpine heights, there are routes ranging for novices and advanced riders. Paragliders, Nordic walkers, ambitious climbers and rafting fans will also feel comfortable in Schenna.

For families, there is a mini-golf course or eventful riding lessons on the lungeing rein with trained Haflinger horses. The Schenna panoramic outdoor pool provides additional variety during the holiday in South Tyrol.
