“Worth seeing” is probably the most accurate: a stroll through Merano and its eventful history is always worth a visit.
Famed as the divine garden, and known since the time of Empress Sissi as the favorite vacation spot of Habsburg high society – Merano has been inspiring the senses forever.
The cityscape is characterised by imposing belle époque buildings, the Kurhaus and the city theatre are known as jewels of the Jugendstil, and the Merano arcades tell the tale of a bustling city through the ages.
But Merano is more than just glorious history. The Merano Music Festival and Merano WineFestival draw visitors from all over the world and the spa in the city centre is a yardstick for competitors.
The best time for a stroll around Merano? Friday! That’s when merchants from near and far come together at the local market. Whether you’re sampling fresh local fruit or the incomparable artisanal meats or just soaking up the atmosphere, the Merano market has something for everybody.
