Hiking resort Merano 2000
Merano 2000 - Everything you need for a pleasant break!
The sun-soaked hiking and recreation area of Merano 2000 is an inviting option to swap the city for the mountains, with a swift 7 minute ropeway journey that will take you right on to the sunny terrace of Merano. Award-winning architecture and sustainable mobility in one of the most modern and innovative uplift systems in the Alps.
Once arrived on Merano 2000 the breathtaking view takes you as far as the Ortles range and the Dolomites, UNESCO World Heritage. The more romantic ones can go on an excursion with the Haflinger horses from Avelengo and Verano. The others can enjoy mountain bike routes, hiking trails and excursions to mountain peaks. Numerous trails with stunning views start from Falzeben and Piffing to reach the far end of the resort. Kuhleiten (2363m), Kesselberg (2300m), Mittager (2422m), Kreuzjöchl or Stoanerne Mandln are a few favored goals. New: kids under the age of 8 have free access on any of the uplifts.
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. Adrenalin junkies will get their fix either on the Alpin Bob, a 1,1 km long rail guided bob-sleigh run.
Quiet places and cosy mountain refuges within the Merano 2000 resort are the 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 with Alpine-Mediterranean specialities. The very practical proximity of Merano 2000 to the Spa-town of Merano allows you to enjoy a relaxing stroll in the historic centre straight after a day in the mountains.
