Holidays in Meran
There is no doubt: Meran is a lively metropolis. Just some years ago the city was considered to be a boring place – today it is a vibrant centre of the wellness and spa scene of South Tyrol.
Due to the new thermal baths, the wonderful gardens of Trauttmansdorff, the noble shopping street, the rich cultural life with music and theatre and the exciting nightlife, Meran is a first-class holiday destination – for everybody, in any time of the year.
Down in the valley Meran is surrounded by fruit orchards and vineyards; high above there are the mighty mountain summits of the Texel group. In the environs, but also in the city itself you will find an interesting mix of Mediterranean flair and alpine cordiality: Italian ice-cream parlours next to shops with Tyrolean bacon, modern buildings à la Matteo Thun next to the venerable Kurhaus, noble boutiques next to traditional shops.
A meeting point for epicures
In Meran, people attach great importance to enjoyment and pleasures – and not only culinary ones. Because here you can enjoy so many things: wonderful promenades, hiking tours through the vineyards, biking tours on varied trails, the blossom in the unforgettable gardens Trauttmansdorff, in the evenings summer concerts in castles and stately homes… In autumn, many wine cellars in Meran and environs invite you to taste the new wine, in winter there is the attractive skiing area Meran 2000 with well-prepared slopes.
In short: You will surely not get bored in Meran. Although the spa town has still preserved its traditional image, today it is also a modern holiday destination, offering a lot of fun!
