Spring in Meran & environs
The town of Meran and its surroundings open its doors to a whole new series of events! In the wonderful setting of apple trees flowering: sports, events, entertainment for everyone!
There are a lot of things to do for nature lovers, such as walking along the famous water paths, coach trips between the beautiful apple trees, bicycle or horse tours. For those who love good food, we recommend the gastronomic weeks in spring where you can enjoy traditional dishes such as asparagus and farm products.
Spring in Meran and environs
The first tepid spring days lure you out from the warm and cosy living room, a Cappuccino on one of the tables on the promenade tastes much better with the first sun rays on the faces and you admire the last snow on the top of the peaks of the mountain range Texelgruppe.
Because of the fortunate climatic location of the city, Meran opens the doors for the spring already early in March and in the Garden of Trauttmansdorff Castle the first tulips and daffodils wake up. The typical South Tyrolean Haflinger horses get ready for the traditional Haflinger horse race in April, as well as for example the runners for the marathon from Meran to Algund.
But the springtime in Meran offers you much more: In this period of the year you can go skiing on the slopes in the winter and hiking paradise of Meran 2000, you can explore the surroundings with your mountain bike and if you are tired of pedalling, than you can just take the nice train called "Vinschgerbahn" back to your hotel in Meran.
