Alpine Mediterranean Charme
Meran in South Tyrol: culture, shopping and thermal baths
This worldwide famous thermal and health resort lies at 324 m above sea level in a natural basin where three important valleys meet. Merano is well-known for its unique and exceptional Mediterranean microclimate: a true rarity if you think about its location in the heart of the Alps! The city’s favourable position at the foot of the mountains provides the perfect conditions for the growth of Mediterranean and subtropical plants which make the already splendid gardens and parks even more impressive.
Often called “the Pearl of South Tyrol”, Merano is a resourceful town with thousands of offers all year round: an active cultural centre proposing films, theatre and musical performances, exhibitions and events, an exclusive shopping resort with elegant boutiques and shops under the Arcades and, last but not least, an international thermal and health resort with a long tradition now enhanced by the new Thermal Baths.
The Merano Thermal Baths
The 7.650 sq m of the new Merano Thermal Baths represent a paradise not only for “wellness-lovers”. 25 pools, 8 saunas and Turkish baths, a modern fitness centre, an exclusive Spa & Vital Centre and a comfortable bistro welcome guests in a world of pure wellbeing for body, mind and spirit.
The Tappeiner Promenades
Considered one of the most beautiful high-altitude Promenades in Europe, the Tappeiner walk runs for about 4 km/2.5 miles at a height of around 380m above Meran, out into the countryside.
The Passer Promenades
Pleasing promenades along the river Passirio in the hearth of Merano. Elegant cafés, shops and boutiques and splendid parks and gardens give an aristocratic touch to your holidays in Merano!
The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle
On the hillside above Merano these gardens donate visitors some hours of tranquillity and harmony among flowers and plants original from all over the world. A relaxing and educative experience in close contact with nature.
