“Sample the Merano Hohenweg”

Merano High Mountain Trail
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This footpath is a 5-day walk around the magnificent Texel Mountains. To give lesser mortals an easier taste of the trail, take the train from Merano to Naturns (0916am) and turn left out of the station to get the 261 bus going up the magnificent gorge called Schnalstal (or Senales in Italian). Get of at the tiny village of Katharinaberg with it's church perched on the cliff edge. Follow the walking signs Merano Hohenweg (number 24) taking it nice and easy, first up a bit but then contouring, ending up in Unterstell. You'll find a selection of Alms where you can get a bite. We enjoyed sharing a Kaiserschmarrn - a bit like a very tasty chopped up pancake with redcurrant sauce. From Unterstell you can get the chairlift back to Naturns area, where you can walk back to the station - or use a bus to Naturns. The walk is an easy 3 hours if, like us, you're not as young as you used to be and enjoy sorting out flowers, butterflies etc. brilliant day out!

We thought one of these reviews should be in English. We are local American residents and we have been coming here for 15 years. The trail is fantastic as are the lifts.

We suggest the following itinerary: Drive to the village of Velloi, which is above Lagundo. From these, take the 2 person bucket lift to the Leiteralm. This is a great place to have a coffee and prepare yourself for the trail. From the Leiteralm, traverse the Meraner Höhenweg to the Steinegg. This walk is about an hour. Have lunch at the Steinegg and hike back to the Leiteralm and take the return lift to Velloi. This will give you a full day of views, fresh air and good food.

Tip: We have taken many friends on this hiking trail and always advise them to wear good footware and not drink a lot of beer at either alm. The trail is very well maintained, but the drop-offs are steep; not a place to goof around. A clear day after high winds will provide the best views. Also, beware of afternoon thunder storms from June through August. A light jacket is a good idea.

In our opinion, this is the absolute best local attraction in the Meran area. There is no fee for the trail, but lift tickets need to be purchased. The altitude is over 1,500 meters and we have seen people from 8 years old to 85 years old on the trail. Enjoy!
