Merano is located at the confluence of Adige and Passer and is today the second largest city in South Tyrol. Four large valleys come together in the Meraner Becken: Vinschgau, Adige Valley, Passeiertal and Ultental.
This exceptional location amidst the South Tyrolean mountains together with the medieval old town and the Mediterranean flair make Merano a popular holiday destination.
In addition to sporting activities such as hiking and cycling, the numerous museums and sights, the botanical garden, the various cultural and sporting events and traditional festivals complete the tourist offer.
Merano, the historic spa town on the Passer
Merano is characterized by extensive parks and green promenades, botanical gardens and numerous watercourses. The city impresses with the alpine-mediterranean atmosphere and the urban flair in the old town, between medieval arcades and the magnificent buildings of the Belle Époque. The snow-capped peaks of the glaciers perch on the horizon of the palm trees along the Passer Promenade and over the exotic plants of the award-winning gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. The varied cultural offerings range from the Merano spring to the grape festival and Meran Christmas, from the Merano Music Weeks to the Merano WineFestival.merano-suedtirol.it/de/meran.html
