What Meran 2000 is to skiers in winter, it is in summer to hikers: an invigorating spot for relaxing in with a striking rural beauty and offering lots of chances to engage in various sporting activities. Walkers cross paths with mountain bikers, hikers come across horse riders, climbers meet paragliders – all united in their wish to enjoy the great outdoors and indulge their passion for activities in the open air.
Meran 2000 near the DolceVita Hotel ALPIANA RESORT has long had a name as a ski resort. In the meantime, it has established itself as a sunny ‘leisure park’ in harmony with nature. An intricate network of walking paths spread their white lines across the ochre and green landscape. Sporting challenges await before a unique mountain backdrop, with the granite Ifinger mountain as the centerpiece.
The walking paths on Meran-Merano’s ‘sun terrace’ are of easy to medium difficulty, including circular walks and panoramic paths, pushchair-friendly walks across mountain pastures and more challenging tours to mountain peaks. Meran 2000 has an extensive and well-signposted network of paths. There are also mountain huts and pastures offering a spot to rest your legs and treats for your tastebuds – usually in the form of steaming ‘Knödel’ dumplings, home-made elderflower cordial, oven-fresh cakes. Not forgetting the terraces for sunbathing.
Yellow-green, granite-grey, the blue of mountain lakes. The colours of the landscape around the DolceVita Hotel merge together in passing. Mountain bikers manoevre themselves expertly down the rough trails, while riders on the backs of native Haflinger ponies trot along, sometimes galloping down the steeper paths. Paragliders look down from above, as speedhikers stride upwards at a brisk pace.
