Enjoy the historic town in summer and winter time.

You stay about 10 minutes by car / 5 km from the Merano 2000 ski and hiking area and 10 km from the Texel Group Nature Park. You could do sports first, then take a stroll in the beautiful old town of Merano, do some shopping at Laubengasse, eat an ice cream on the Passer and end the afternoon with relaxation and wellness in the Merano thermal baths. A fulfilling day – simply awesome!

Trauttmansdorff Castle with the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle:

The gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle are less than 5 km away from the appartment. They extend over an area of 12 hectares in the form of a natural amphitheater over a height difference of 100 meters. This opens up impressive perspectives on exotic garden landscapes as well as breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and the spa town of Merano.

Bozen: you can reach the provincial capital Bozen in approximately 25 minutes by car. The most beautiful sights in Bolzano are located directly in the city center of the old town. The capital of South Tyrol is called Bolzano in Italian and has its own special flair. The main attraction is the Archaeological Museum, in which none other than Ötzi “lives”.
