Step back in time to the Belle Époque era at the Hotel Meranerhof. The hotel’s been run by the lovely Eisenkeil-Waldner family since 1966 and they’ve worked hard to maintain the history of the property while making each guest feel welcome.

Fantastic pool and spa 

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. Don't forget to try out the Finnish sauna, Roman steam bath and infrared loungers too!

Summertime mountain views and central location

The hotel’s surrounded by the southern Tyrolean mountain ranges with the peaks of Mutspitze, Hirzer and Tschigat providing breath-taking scenery, particularly in the summer. Dinner is served in a gorgeous glass ceiling atrium with the tables out on the terrace in the warmer summer months. 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.

Merano is a favoured summer holiday destination and a culturally rich town known for its radon springs and spas. Sitting in a beautiful South Tyrolean basin surrounded by mountains, it has medieval arcades, castles and churches dating back to the 12th century. In summer the mountains come alive with colourful wildflowers, crystal-clear streams and verdant vineyards and forests. Whether you're walking or just relaxing in one of the town’s many parks or its botanical gardens, the views are breath-taking.

Luxury in Merano: a royal flush

Once visited by Austrian royals, Merano became a popular summer retreat among the European bourgeoisie in the 19th century, and has beautiful hotels and architecture to show for it. Today you can follow in the footsteps of the 19th century elite by walking in the foothills, lazing in the many spas and visiting the incredible Trauttmansdorff Castle botanical gardens, which you can walk to from town on the famous Sissi's Path.

Thermal spa therapy

Merano is known for its natural hot springs, and there are several thermal spas in the area where you can relax and rejuvenate in the healing waters. Some of the most popular spots include the Terme Merano (the Merano Thermal Baths) and the AquaForum.

Sightseeing in Merano: centuries of culture (and wine)

Merano has a rich cultural heritage, with several museums, galleries and historic buildings to explore. The town is particularly well known for its Art Nouveau architecture, which can be seen in buildings like the Kurhaus and Villa Tivoli. If you visit the Castel Rametz, you can explore the ancient wine cellar, said to be the first place to produce wine in the Alps, going all the way back to Roman times.

Tyrolean treats: tuck into Merano's local food

The food might be the best thing of all in Italy’s South Tyrol and a highlight of your summer holiday. Blending Austrian, Italian and Mediterranean influences, traditional Tyrolean dishes include speck (smoked ham), knödel (dumplings) and kaiserschmarrn (shredded pancake) alongside the classic Italian favourites. Wash it all down with a glass of wine from a local vineyard.
