The Tappeinerweg, one of Meran's many promenades, offers a magnificent view of the spa town and the Adige Valley.
One of Meran's most famous walks is undoubtedly the Tappeinerweg, which runs from the city center along the Küchelberg slope. It is one of the most beautiful high altitude promenades in Europe and offers a mix of alpine and Mediterranean vegetation in combination with a wonderful panoramic view. Pines, Himalayans, cork oaks, olive trees, eucalyptus, bamboos and magnolias, agaves, aloes and prickly pears grow along the path.
The Tappeinerweg takes its exit opposite the mouth of the Gilfpromenade in the old Passeirerstraße. At a length of almost 4 km, it leads from the parish church to Gratsch. He has already been described as the "gallery of the paradisiacal scenery of the Burggrafenamt" or as the "crown of Meran". The town of Meran owes this stroll to the botanist, doctor and anthropologist dr. Franz Tappeiner from Laas in Vinschgau, after whom the path is named. Since the path has hardly any gradients, it is also suitable for a stroll with the stroller.

The Tappeinerweg in Meran is one of the most beautiful promenades in Europe and was created by the spa physician Franz Tappeiner (1816-1902) from Laas in the Vinschgau, a passionate anthropologist and botanist. The sun-drenched promenade offers a magnificent view of the entire city and unites the special inner-Alpine dry vegetation on these exposed southern slopes with Mediterranean plants.
