Hiking in Merano and Environs, South Tyrol's holiday paradise

Romantic routes, Alpine adventures
This region has a large selection of hiking trails: leisurely walkers can take the region’s well-known Waalweg paths - picturesque routes along narrow irrigation channels which were once used to water the fields and orchards. The Marlinger Waalweg trail from Töll to Oberlana is particularly nice. As the longest route of its kind in the whole of South Tyrol, it runs through sunny vineyards and shady chestnut forests. The forest adventure trail along the route also provides information about the delicate ecosystem. We also have an insider tip for romantic hikers: the guided hikes running through dense chestnut forests in the province of Lana. They are held at sunrise in radiant light or on mysterious nights with a full moon. The Alpine region and holiday paradise of Merano and environs is scattered with vast larch forests, emerald green mountain lakes, alpine flowers, chamois, marmots, cosy cabins and tranquil alpine pastures. The Meraner Höhenweg also runs through here. It is one of the most beautiful hiking tours the Alps has to offer, where hikers ramble at an altitude of 1,000 to just under 3,000 metres. The entire 80 km trail around the Texelgruppe Nature Park lasts for four to six days, and even the individual stages promise to take you on sensational adventures.
