Trails in Merano/Meran and more tips for your summer holiday

An active life is a happy life

Trails in Merano and environs are as multi-faceted as the region itself. Discover the "waalwege", trails following ancient irrigation channels. These trails in Merano/Meran, which were once created to keep up with the maintenance of the ancient irrigation channels, trace back to times such as the 13th century. Today, the "waalwege" surrounding Merano/Meran are popular walking paths for young and old because they are mainly even and offer fantastic views over Merano and environs. Same goes for the promenades in Merano/Meran - the wonderful walking paths travel the length and breadth of the spa town Merano/Meran.

The trails in Merano/Meran and the "waalwege" are not the only thing to discover. The largest nature park in South Tyrol, the Texel Group nature park is only a stone's throw away and offers - besides the Merano High Trail - one of the most popular hiking destinations in the area. Also the hiking regions Hirzer and Merano 2000 are worth a visit! They all share breathtakingly gorgeous nature, ever-green alpine pastures and majestic peaks, fantastic panoramic views and traditional cottages, which are always worth to stop and take a rest.

Biking in Merano and environs offers equally extraordinary nature experiences. On the Southern side of the Alps you find perfectly groomed biking trails, down-hill trails in respectable heights, pass roads for race bikers as well as varied bike tours through orchards and woods. A paradise for passionate bikers!

What's more, the region is ideal for Nordic Walking, swimming, golfing, rafting and much more.
