Hiking around Dorf Tirol
The sunny paradise on the South side of the Alps! Dorf Tirol is romantically situated - above the well-known health resort Meran - amongst green vineyards and apple trees.
Whatever you do – strolling along promenades with Mediterranean flair, going on a shopping expedition or enjoying the mixture of Italian and Tyrolean cuisine – the sun will always shine for you. Here – on the south side of the Alps - the sun shines on average 300 days per year!
Hiking & walking
Dorf Tirol is characterized by an extraordinary beautiful landscape – from the valley to the sunny slopes of the Küchelberg hill at 600 m of altitude and further on to the Spronser lakes situated at 2,500 m. The nearby nature park Texelgruppe – the biggest of all South Tyrolean Nature parks – exhibits one of the most beautiful landscapes of the region.
Dorf Tirol is the perfect location for mountain excursions and hiking tours: 70 km of marked hiking trails invite you to explore the unspoiled nature, the beautiful orchards and vineyards, green alpine meadows, romantic mountain huts, clear lakes and snow-covered mountains.
Enjoy a stroll along the “Waale”. "Waale" are ancient irrigation channels, formerly used to water the alpine meadows and the fruit orchards, with paths running alongside them to provide access for maintenance purposes. Nowadays these paths, or “Waalwege” provide great opportunities for walking.
