Hiking in Merano and surroundings

Nature lovers and sports enthusiasts can explore the Alpine world of the South Tyrol on well-marked trails. Cosy Alpine huts invite the wanderers in for a well-earned rest and the sound of fresh flowing water accompanies every step.

Oberer Waalweg
In front of the Moserhof go along the path to the Georgenhöhe, then on to the Waalweg (path that follows the irrigation channels through the fields), where you turn left. Follow the Waalweg above St. Georgen with a view of Meran, through the Brunjaunerhof and on to the romantic “Cat’s ladder” then continue to the Taser cable car / Pichler.

Vorbichel adventure trail in Tisens-Prissian
Ideal for children, an attractive round circuit. Explore and discover nature through play. Wooden bells, slides, a pond, an over-sized wooden bench, a stunning lookout point and much more...

International felt-art trail Vorbichl Tisens
Artworks made from felt line the circuit, all made of wool from Alpine sheep. Deep in the countryside, partially hidden, at the side of the path in the tops of trees, each new bend in the path hides new surprises. Children run from one to the next, and even adults are curious about the next work of art.
