Hiking in Merano

Water paths and challenging hiking tours

Due to its location and easy access to the public transport network our Eremita Hotel, the Camping Hermitage and Guesthouse Grafenstein (500 m) is an ideal starting point for walks, hikes and mountain tours in Merano.

Directly from the hotel-camping and Guesthouse you can reach many pleasant walks, such as the numerous water paths „Waalwege“ which usually are very comfortable, without significant slope and ideal for trips with children. Its special appeal is determined by the creeks along the varied paths, partly through orchards and meadows, partly through forested sections.

For the hikers, numerous challenging hiking tours deep in our unique high mountain landscape are waiting for you:
In the heart of the Meraner Land is located the 33,430 ha beautiful Texel Group Nature Park, the largest nature park in South Tyrol with its rich treasures of flora and fauna. To wander here and to establish a real relationship with the nature is a true gift.

Our hotel is located just 300 meters from the valley station of the hiking area Merano 2000 and you are free to move the starting point for walks in the mountains at 2000 m, which can be very comfortable especially in summer.
