South Tyrolean Wine & Alpine Pasture Trail

ORCHARDS, FLOWERING MOUNTAIN MEADOWS & ITALIAN FLAIR

Italy is always worth a trip and the northernmost region of the country offers so many highlights and advantages for leisure hikers that you can hardly ignore the “South Tyrolean Wine and Alpine Pasture Trail” when planning your holiday. This hiking tour with Eurohike is particularly suitable for a short hiking holiday, as it takes you from Merano to Bolzano over four days. Forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse yourself in dreamy landscapes, excellent cuisine and the Mediterranean flair of the two most popular cities in South Tyrol.

Details about the hiking tour on the South Tyrolean Wine and Alpine Pasture Trail

The tour starts in beautiful Merano, which is often referred to as the garden city. It is worth visiting the botanical gardens at Trauttmansdorff Castle, where around 5,800 plant species are waiting to be explored. The icing on the cake is the magnificent castle and the picturesque views of the surrounding mountains.

Speaking of mountain worlds - day 2 takes you 19 km through Lana and Tesimo to Nals. Look forward to blooming apple orchards, quiet forests and historic castles. The second hiking stage of this short break impresses with excellent views and wines. When you arrive in Bolzano, you should enjoy the Mediterranean delicacies of antipasti, pizza, dolce & cappuccino and stock up on a drop or two of regional wine to take home.

Highlights of the hike on the South Tyrolean Wine and Alpine Pasture Trail

  • The spa and thermal town of Merano: Tradition and Mediterranean ease - that is what distinguishes this special city. The magnificent buildings and spacious parks date from the time when the European nobility loved to stay here.
  • South Tyrolean Wine Route: Hike towards the sun on the “Strada del Vino”. But don't forget to stop off, taste the award-winning wines and get to know the warm hospitality of South Tyrolean winegrowers.
  • Idyllic arbour lanes in Bolzano: An espresso or aperitivo in the lively cafés or shopping in the chic boutiques - the characteristic arbour lanes are not only full of Italian atmosphere, they are also a special attraction of the city.
  • Romantic alpine hikes: Lush alpine meadows with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains - nature-based hiking in South Tyrol is a tradition. Stop in the rustic huts, where you can try the regional specialties.
  • Fascinating mountain views of the Catinaccio: You would probably not recognise the name of this mountain range in the Dolomites. The characteristic formation is eye-catching! By the way: Those who appreciate blooming beauties can find what they are looking for in “Rosendorf” Nals.

Interesting facts about hiking on the South Tyrolean Wine and Alpine Pasture Trail
