ACTIVE HOLIDAYThoughts may let one think.
But only what’s done may let one live.
Paul von Heyse
Between active life and romanticism
A holiday in Merano is always a mixture of activity and relax…and a little romanticism as well. It is a natural condition of this city, established as a ‘climatic resort’ 150 years ago.
From the golden age of the austro-hungarian empire we have inherited the lush buildings of the city centre, the stunning villas in the distinguished Maia-Alta district, the enchanting parks and walks. Consistently Merano is also known as the “Garden-City”.
Its surroundings seem designed especially for excursionists, cyclists and mountain-bike lovers of every age and constitution. The city itself is also full of attractions. Please find some suggested visits described in this chapter.
