The fastest way to your temporary home.

Central yet quiet. A retreat and perfect starting point at the same time. The Kolping is a somewhat different city hotel in Merano. You will find us in the green residential district of Maia Alta - just a few minutes' walk from the lively and popular city centre. There are many ways that you can reach us. We would be happy to help you plan your trip!
