Holiday & excursion tips in Merano and surroundings

What to see and discover around Merano

Imagine a dinner at the Patriarch Hotel. The dish is well-known, but it has been revisited - and suddenly you experience an explosion of senses. A similar experience is to be had with the Spa and culture city of Merano: a mix of very different sensory and cultural experiences, brought together but not overlapping. What will impress you is not just the typical “Dolce Vita” atmosphere and the “Belle Epoque” charm, but also the Tyrol tradition, the historic-cultural heritage and the South Tyrol customs.


Exotic plants standing against the imposing mountain chains, “promenades” and elegant buildings meet the deeply rooted traditions and customs of Tyrol: welcome to a multi-faceted holiday in Merano!
