In the breath
of winter


In the past, winter was the ideal time to recharge your batteries, slow down a bit and catch your breath. However in our hectic everyday lives today, consciously taking time for ourselves has slipped further and further into the background. It is important to be able to take a short break from our everyday distractions. And where better to do it than high up in the southtyrolean mountains? With snowshoes on your feet, a feeling of effortlessness in your rucksack and your mobile phone switched to flight mode. Conquer the mountains - this short break will be wonderful. That's a promise!

Gentle winter sport is ideal for getting closer to nature and finding yourself. And best of all – anyone can go winter hiking or snowshoeing. There’s no need for previous experience or to be in tip-top physical condition. You alone are in charge of how quickly you move, and you can adapt your route to your level of fitness. The snowshoes and hiking sticks can be hired from the mountain station of Merano 2000, which can be reached quickly and easily in just 7 minutes with the funicular.
Even the ride in the gondola is a first step to slowing down. With every metre you climb, your pulse rate falls. At by the time the cabin doors open, the clear mountain air will have blown away the last stress-filled thoughts of everyday life. Your physical and mental time-out can begin.

From Pfiffing mountain station you’ll tramp through the sleepy cotton wool-like snow. Across the hilly natural landscape and along the valley basin, past single, snow-covered spruce trees and alpine chalets. Always at a leisurely pace. Accompanied by sunshine and the snow-capped expanses. Up here you cannot hear much more than the crunch beneath your snowshoes.

And by the time you have reached the very top, you will feel as if you could do anything.
No matter where your trip takes you – for example to Kuhleiten Alpine Hut or the Mittager – every destination around Merano 2000 in Southtyrol is unique. The views stretch in all directions to the Merano valley basin, the Dolomites and the Ivigna. And everywhere you will be able to feel your batteries recharging. Up there the moment belongs to you alone. So breathe in the silence and consciously experience every moment with all of your senses.
