A house with history(s)



Founding of the Kolpingsfamilie Meran

Adolph Kolping and Dean Anton Santer founded the first association in Merano. Theater performances, festivals, and sports activities take place at the Gesellenhaus, the Löwenwirtshaus in the center. Through various events, the Gesellenverein Meran (now Kolping Meran) promotes community and unity among its members.


Construction of the Art Nouveau Hotel Regina

Around the turn of the century, the Hotel Regina was built in the charming Art Nouveau style in Maia Alta. The establishment quickly became a popular and well-known city hotel in Merano. The elegant facade with intricately wrought iron balconies still radiates the incomparable charm of that era today.


Opening of the Hotel Kolping

The Kolping guest house is ceremoniously opened. It now comprises 29 guest rooms, 45 student rooms, seminar rooms, a cafeteria, a swimming pool, a bar, a rooftop terrace, lounges for children and teenagers, an underground parking garage, and a chapel dedicated to the Blessed Adolph Kolping.


From city hotel to feel-good place

Several renovation works have transformed the 3-star hotel into a popular destination for holidays in Merano. All hotel rooms have been refurbished, and the café and bistro have been redesigned. The latest addition is the modern spa area, featuring a Finnish sauna, steam room, relaxation areas, whirlpool, and rooftop terrace.

Encounters enrich

The focus is on togetherness.

The Kolpinghaus Merano is a place to socialise and be sociable. Which is why we don't just have a city hotel here, but also a student home and event location.
