Historical Spa Town Meran in the middle of South Tyrol
There where North and South flow into each other, where palm trees and glaciers advertise in peaceful competition for the favour of guests, that is exactly where Meran is situated. A city with the charm of past days, with the vigour of our time and looking towards the future. Meran stands for so much that awakens joy for life: music, health resorts, conventions, culture. Centuries old pathways invite you to stroll along them, magnificent parks exude freedom and well-being. Where tradition and modern, history and the present are in happy synthesis. Meran – the golden centre.
The small city steeped in history on the Passer River provides diverse leisure and cultural offers in the city centre and the surrounding nature. Let yourself be carried away by the Alpine-Mediterranean attitude to life and enjoy the unique mixture of city and country! In Meran, from March to October there are numerous concerts with a diverse orchestra and music bands for the summer entertainment programme; in the winter you can enjoy the pensive pre-Christmas Advent atmosphere at the Meran Christmas market. Gourmet fans are well catered for in Meran all year round. In the sleepy little narrow lanes you can discover hidden culinary locales with fine South Tyrol specialities.
You can reach Meran from the small paradise Sonnbichl comfortably with the chairlift or by foot along the blossoming Tappeinerweg. The view is wonderful. The Meran thermal springs, the Meran spa resort and the city parish St. Nikolaus are radiant in a certain light – history and the present are perfectly staged!
