Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Salgart has one of the most idyllic locations in Merano. It’s on the outskirts of the town, surrounded by vineyards and orchards with views over the stunning Etch Valley. The centre of Merano is a pleasant 20-minute walk away or you can use the local buses that stop around a five-minute walk away from the hotel.

This is a family-run place that strives to make every guest feel at home. The rooms have been renovated in a modern style with balconies either facing the rear of the hotel, where you can enjoy the peace and quiet, or over the pool, where you can take advantage of the sun. The hotel’s amenities are plentiful with a lovely outdoor pool and a separate heated indoor pool. The new dining room offers panoramic views and local cuisine, using fresh produce to create South Tyrolean and Italian dishes.

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.
