The spa resort of Merano screams culture with lots of museums and historical places of interest like Trauttmansdorff Castle and Merano’s very own racecourse dating back to 1886. Best of all is the mix of culture in the food with Alpine and South Tyrolean ingredients coming together to create culinary delights. Wash them down with a delicious locally-made wine from one of the many vineyards.
What to see on a Merano holiday
The Passirio River flows through the centre of this charming town, which hosts the Merano flower festival every year. Restaurants, markets and shops selling local produce line the streets and there’s plenty of walks along the river. There’s some spectacular hikes along gorges, lakes and up the mountain trails too. The Knottnkino lookout point is a must. We'd also recommend heading up to the Rametz Castle for the day, where you can explore an ancient winery and wine museum, as well as taste some of the delicious local wines.
Merano is separate from the typical Dolomite style mountains, so instead you'll be surrounded by stunning Sud-Tyrolean-Alps style mountains. The closest mountain range is the Texel Mountain Group which is to the North of Merano and has peaks with an altitude of up to 3000 metres.
