Due to the new thermal baths, the wonderful gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle, the noble shopping street under the arcades, the rich cultural life with music, theatre, as well as an exciting nightlife and much more, Meran is a first-class holiday destination – for everybody and at any time of the year.

On the valley floor, Meran is surrounded by fruit orchards and vineyards; on higher altitudes it is protected by the mighty mountain summits of Texel Group.
