The music, the food, the seasons – in Meraner land and the surroundings of the ALPIANA – green luxury Dolce Vita Hotel, in its valleys and towns, there’s frequent cause for celebration.
South Tyroleans tend towards a sociable and humorous disposition and like to keep up traditions and customs. This means that there’s often cause for celebration! Traditional costume parades and village bands, wine and other product tasting such as apples, grapes, chestnuts – all the marvels that the region has to offer are a good reason for a party.
The Schnalstal valley ‘Almabtrieb’, or driving down of the sheep from their summer pastures, the International Mountain Festival, Merano WineFestival - all these events, just like the Christmas Market in Meran, have become known further afield. Yet ‘minor’ events, such as late-opening Thursdays in Lana or village fete-style ‘Kirchtage’ in the surrounding area have their own charm and feature typical, authentic food and customs.
At jolly folk festivals you’ll see feathers bobbing up and down on hats and local ‘dirndl’ dresses whirling round. Yet there also artistic and cultural happenings of a more contemporary nature taking place in Meraner Land listed in detail here. There’s always something going on in Lana and Völlan-Foiana, too.
The ALPIANA – green luxury Dolce Vita Hotel reflects what make the region so special. Meeting new people, social activities, celebrating special occasions, conviviality and openness are values that are upheld here.
