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 breath-taking scenery. Dinner is served in a gorgeous glass ceiling atrium with the tables out on the terrace in the warmer 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.

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

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.

Things to Do

Things to see and do in Merano

Enjoy lovely walks along the river to the historical centre of Merano. You’ll find all sorts of shops, art nouveau buildings, castles and plenty of museums. You can’t miss the famous gardens of Castel Trauttmansdorff. It was first built in 1300AD and today tourists come from all around the world to see the spectacular gardens in bloom. For a great day out, hop on a train to Bolzano where you’ll find some of the best gelato in the South Tyrol. 

Food & drink 

This region is well known for its wine and beer thanks to its Mediterranean climate. Orchards and vineyards line the mountains and stretch down to the town. We recommend visiting Castello Rametz, a wine museum where you can take a guided walk around and try the wine. 

There’s a number of Michelin starred restaurants here for fine dining and local, family-run places too. Our go-to dish is Schlutzer. It's a traditional handmade ravioli dish stuffed with spinach, onion, nutmeg and covered in butter.


Cycling is a great way to see the area. Dedicated bike paths make it easy for all the family to go out and explore. Be sure to take your camera to capture the amazing scenery as you go.

Merano is known for being a spa town and a visit to the Terme Merano is a must. There’s an impressive 25 pools and a 2,200m² sauna area, perfect for a bit of relaxation while on holiday.

The restaurant's renowned for using high quality and locally-sourced ingredients so you can try some of the finest Southern Tyrolean cuisine. There's a salad bar each evening too with grilled Mediterranean vegetables, home-cooked croutons and dressings. Once a week there's a gala dinner with aperitivo.
