Kolping Merano/Meran – a house with a history

Step in, make yourself at home, live it up & liven up

Hotel Kolping Merano/Meran is a place where it is all about living together. That is why Kolping Merano/Meran is not only a city hotel in Merano/Meran, but also a college and a congress centre.

Already Adolph Kolping, founder of the Kolping Society and initiator of Kolping Merano/Meran knew about the unique beauty and nature of South Tyrol. He visited the region in 1841 and 1855 and wrote: "You believe you are in paradise." (Journal, 1841)

Like many Kolping houses all over the world, also Kolping Merano/Meran focuses on the following mission:

  • Supporting members to be good Christians in the world: at work, in their marriage and family, in church and country
  • Offering members and non-members a helping hand in their life
  • Supporting the various activities and the renewal of church and society
