Hiking holidays in the Dolomites, Italy
South Tyrol's hiking paradise offers exciting tracks and hiking routes amid authentic mountain scenery. Conquer the peaks in the Meran region while on a hiking holiday at the Tirolensis hotel.
South Tyrol has over 17.000 kilometres of marked hiking trails. Many of the most scenic routes can be found during your holiday at the Tirolensis Hotel and Apartment House in the Meran region. The low range mountains of Tisens are practically at the hotel's doorstep.
The hiking routes lead through orchards and unique mountain landscapes to stunning vantage points. During your hikes in the largely untouched South Tyrolean countryside you will come across mediaeval castles, romantic churches and ruins. Aside from the South Tyrolean hospitality you will appreciate the mild climate, the clean air, the well-tended orchards and the tranquil mountain lakes. Hiking highlights in the Tessimo-Prissian area are the international "Filzkunst" (the art of feltmaking) hiking trail and the nature theme trail.
A must for all visitors is the oldest and largest vine in Europe at "Schloss Katzenzungen", which stretches over an impressive 300 m². However, not only the low range mountains are worth a visit; from Tisens-Prissian you have access to the best hiking trails in the whole Meran region. The Meran high level trail, for example, is a great route for experienced hikers, and to enjoy the whole stretch, you will need to calculate a few days of hiking. There are plenty of shorter options of this route, and the staff at the Tirolensis Hotel will be happy to advise you about shorter day routes.
The so-called "Waalwege" are especially popular; they lead along the old streams up to the summits at 3000 metres altitude. Choose between easier, gentle routes and challenging tours; ask at the reception for information about which route is best for you and your family. After a hard day's hiking you can enjoy using the hotel amenities, such as sauna, outdoor pool, or indoor pool to relax and recharge your batteries.
To round the day off the restaurant offers typical South Tyrol cuisine. A hiking holiday in the South Tyrol will take you to the most impressive landscapes in the Southern Alps. Don't miss out on this active holiday.
