The city on the Passirio river and the entire Merano basin offers a unique charm for every preference; come and experience it.

Hikes and walks

From the Tappeiner walks to the Sissi path, from the Lungo Passirio walk to the Gilf Promenade, to higher altitude excursions in the Merano 2000 area: so many beautiful itineraries wind their way around Villa Eden.

By bike

Three cycling paths start from Merano: one towards Malles in Val Venosta, one that reaches Bolzano and one up to San Leonardo in Val Passiria. Pedal through vineyards, apple orchards and alpine natural landscapes, enjoying the view as you go.


The 18-hole Passiria.Merano Golf Club and the 9-hole Tenuta Brandis di Lana courses are located near Villa Eden. Thanks to the mild climate, the season runs from March to December.


The historic centre, with its characteristic medieval arcades, is the realm of shopping, with elegant fashion boutiques and traditional craft shops. In winter, don’t miss the evocative Christmas markets.

Food and wine tours

Choose from the charming cafés in the centre to the bars along the Passeria where you can enjoy an aperitif with a view of the unmistakable dome of the Kurhaus. We also recommend a guided tour and tasting at our Castel Rametz family wine estate.


Merano captivates with its elegant Art Nouveau buildings, with the imposing bell tower of the Cathedral, with the iconic Ponte della Post. The museums and castles are also worth a visit, such as the Prince’s Castle or the Touriseum, the interactive museum of tourism.
