Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Step back in time to the Belle Époque era at Hotel Meranerhof. The old-world elegance is perfect amongst the established gardens and the backdrop of the Dolomites. The hotel’s been run by the lovely Eisenkeil family since 1966 and they’ve worked hard to maintain the history of the property while making each guest feel welcome.

We love the indoor pool here. It connects to the gardens with floor-to-ceiling windows so you can enjoy the views while you take a dip or chill out on one of the outdoor loungers and soak up the sun. Make sure you use the Finnish sauna and Roman steam bath too.

The hotel’s surrounded by the southern Tyrolean mountain ranges with the peaks of Mutspitze, Hirzer and Tschigat providing breathtaking scenery. Dinner is served in a gorgeous glass ceiling atrium with the tables out on the terrace in the warmer months. Chef Arno Fritz and his team create phenomenal cuisine using local produce to offer some fantastic dishes like grilled sea bass with artichoke compote or venison salt baked with smoked beetroot and fresh barley.

When you’re ready to explore, there’s no shortage of adventure to be had with the likes of the Merano Theatre, Princes' Castle and fine art museum all within walking distance.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 15 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Merano’s a spa town just a few miles south of the Austian boarder, so you get this lovely mix of Austro-Italian-Tyrolean culture and cuisine. The Passirio River flows through the centre of town and the promenades on either side are lined by beautiful buildings, with little cafés and restaurants tucked about the place. You couldn’t ask for better scenery – high in the Dolomite mountains, surrounded by vineyards and orchards, it feels idyllic. The Mediterranean climate and fertile soils produce fantastic wines too – so give the local DOC red wines a try while you’re here. There’s varied terrain for walkers and cyclists of all levels. We love the gentle routes along the flat irrigation channels of the Adige Valley that lead to spectacular cascades. The Venosta valley railway from Merano station is a another nice way to explore this beautiful valley; it’s all free with your 7 day Mobilcard, as are the buses and lifts. In between or after active days in the mountains take relaxing dip in the Merano Terme spa pools – it’s the perfect antidote to aching muscles.


St Moritz and the Bernina Express, full day Not to be missed! This full day excursion combines the internationally renowned Swiss resort of St Moritz with the stunning beauty of the Engadine Valley, best appreciated from the windows of the world famous mountain train, the Bernina Express. Please note this excursion runs from 01 Jun 20.

Please be advised this excursion can only run if minimum numbers are reached, bookable in resort only. Should this be an integral part of your desired experience, we would recommend Lake Como, a better location to enjoy this excursion.
