Scena/Schenna stretches from the sunny high plateau above Merano/Meran to the lofty heights of the surrounding mountains. Here you can enjoy hiking, biking or swimming in nature at all altitudes. Thanks to the mild climate in the protected Merano basin, hiking and mountain biking below the high Alpine tree line are possible from spring until late autumn.
The extensive and family-friendly hiking and recreation area ranges in offer from leisurely walks, Kneipp tours and easy hikes through rustic mountain pastures to summit expeditions up to the high peaks of the Ötztal and Sarntal Alps. Along the way, numerous Alpine huts and traditional mountain inns invite visitors to stop and take a leisurely break. As family-run businesses with all the rural charm of Scena, these hospitable huts make for an ideal setting for a family holiday in Merano. Appealing and demanding mountain tours – as well as ski tours in winter – are among the most popular pastimes in the region.
If you prefer to holiday in comfort, enjoy relaxing hours on the Alpine pastures. Here you can enjoy local food and drink in the sun while relaxing on deck chairs: Panoramic views of the mountains, relaxation and enjoyment are also on offer at the new outdoor swimming pools in the area, such as the Lido Scena or Merano’s Thermal Baths, and the natural water pools of Gargazzone/Gargazon in the Etschtal Valley.
