Hiking resort Merano 2000

Merano 2000 - Everything You Need for a Pleasant Holiday!

The sun-soaked hiking and recreation area Merano 2000 is an inviting chance to leave the city for the mountains, with just a swift 7 minute ropeway journey taking you right to the sunny terrace above Merano. Award-winning architecture and sustainable mobility are combined in one of the most modern and innovative elevation systems in the Alps.

Upon arrival in Merano 2000 the breathtaking view stretches as far as the Ortles mountain range and the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage site.  More romantic souls can take an excursion with Haflinger horses from Avelengo and Verano, while others can enjoy mountain biking routes, hiking trails and excursions to mountain peaks. Numerous trails with stunning views start from Falzeben and Piffing and reach to the far end of the resort. Kuhleiten (2363m), Kesselberg (2300m), Mittager (2422m), Kreuzjöchl and Stoanerne Mandln are a few favorite destinations. New: kids under the age of 8 enjoy free access to any of the lifts.

In summer the Luckis Kinderland becomes a playground with a small petting zoo. While kids enjoy the nature and outdoor activities, the parents can have a rest on the terrace of the Panorama Bistro… without losing sight of their children.  Adrenaline junkies can get their fix on the Alpin Bob, a 1.1 km rail-guided bobsled run.

Quiet places and cozy mountain refuges within the Merano 2000 resort are an ideal setting for a hearty meal and a great chance to indulge in some of the delicious local gastronomy. The traditional South Tyrolean cuisine is a treat for the finest palate, featuring Alpine-Mediterranean specialities. The very practical location of Merano 2000 above the spa town of Merano allows you to enjoy a relaxing stroll in the historic centre right after a day in the mountains.
