Holidays in Lana
The vicinity of this village near Meran is probably the largest orchard throughout South Tyrol, full of blossoms, countless apple trees, cypresses and many other plants.
Here and there you will see mysterious castle ruins, embedded in the hilly landscape. Today, many of them are open to the public, for example the stately home Larchgut. Here you will find also the South Tyrolean Museum of Fruit Cultivation, exhibiting rural tools, including the oldest wine press of the region, dating back to 1570.
Leisure time in Lana
A special tip for lovers of art and culture is the parish church in the district Niederlana. From the outside, it appears quite simple and undecorated, but inside there is a 14 m high winged altar, the highest one in the Alps, decorated with partly life-size sculptures.
Also for active holidaymakers in Lana there are many possibilities for their free time. For example, they can go the outdoor swimming pool, the riding stable or to the golf course. The most popular accommodation facilities in Lana are pleasant pensions, hotels and apartments in the midst of vineyards. Culinary delicacies are offered by many good restaurants and rustic wine cellars, where you can taste local wine and South Tyrolean specialities.
