Nature and Culture in and around Schenna above Meran

Experience the most beautiful cultural Landscapes in South Tyrol

Schenna/Scena on the sunny plateau above Meran/Merano with view towards South has unique hiking opportunities through some of the most beautiful cultural landscapes of South Tyrol. This alpine region lives from growing fruit and wine. Lately, livestock farming is increasingly returning, thus during the summer, you see young animals on the meadows such as the Tallner Alm mountain pasture. The tourist attractions are widely spread here, from the Mausoleum in the village of Schenna to the many castles and palaces in the surrounding area.

Enjoying nature in Schenna means above all, hiking in the mild climate, from spring to late autumn and at all altitudes – from the forest road via the walk across pastures to the high-alpine mountain tour. Leisurely Waalwege trails in the low mountain range lead past grapevines and chestnut groves. The Wiesenweg trails leads past all cultural sites and provides magnificent views to the surrounding mountain world, while the Höfeweg farm road connects historical farms above Schenna. In the mountains, well-marked hiking trails are passing from mountain pasture to mountain pasture and up to the impressive high mountains.

The spa town of Meran with its coffee shops, boutiques and the urban wellness area of Terme Meran thermal baths are reached equally as quickly as the cycle and hiking trails all around Schenna. The charming town of Meran is easily reachable on foot via the Mitterplattweg and Maiser Waalweg panoramic promenades. Also during winter, when the Merano Christmas Market calls.
