Walking tour: Meraner Höhenweg - Alta Via di Merano
The Merano High Mountain Trail is about 100 km long and one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the entire Alpine Region. It is divided in a northern and a southern part. Being at a constant height the path acts as intermediary between the high mountain climate of the Texel Group and the sub-mediterranean climate of the Etsch valley. There are various access paths to the Merano High Mountain Trail, and also several paths where you can enter and leave, so that the hike can be started and stopped at any point. In addition you can reach several farms next to the hiking trail. These can also be reached on access roads by car or by taxi, or by small ropeways. The tour is signposted No; 24. Exposed sections of the trail have been made secure by chains, ropes or railings. Steps and ladders also give access on the way up or down.
