City flair: the cities of Meran and Bolzano

Empress Sisi visited Meran as a spa town in the past and even today, Meran attracts thousands of tourists. No wonder: the palm trees set against a backdrop of snow-covered three thousand metre peaks, the medieval arcades and enchanting art nouveau architecture all provide a unique flair. Stroll along the Passirio/Passer river, visit the botanical gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle, or undertake a shopping trip in the historic town of Meran.

 

You can also reach the provincial capital of Bolzano in a short time from Val Passiria/Passeiertal. Its splendid gothic cathedral, picturesque fruit market, Piazza Walther/Waltherplatz, the legendary Catinaccio/Rosengarten, and the old town of Bolzano constantly win your admiration.

My island is the Wiesenhof in St. Leonhard! A good place to recharge your batteries, to feel good, to get away from it all, to meet new friends every year.
