Fantastic views: the holiday location
A sunny south-facing plateau with a wonderful holiday location and absolutely guaranteed views. The small, particularly quiet holiday village of Meransen lies at 1,414 metres up in the fresh Alpine air in the middle of the Zillertal Alps and, with 280 days of sunshine a year, is one of the most sun-spoilt places in South Tyrol.
Here you are right in the middle of a walker’s paradise: from the summit of the Gitschberg you can see over 500 mountain peaks – the fascinating Dolomites, the enormous Zillertal glaciers, and the gigantic Stubai and Ötztal Alps. Over 40 pastures and huts
In Meransen, ramblers, friends of nature and families all have the ideal starting point for a fascinating mountain world. Walking, hiking, trekking, high-level trails and gentle paths over the sunny Meransen plateau are all ways to recover your energy – no matter how difficult (or easy) the route.
The huts are definitely a highlight: here you can drop in and rest a while, with speck, wine, South Tyrolean schüttelbrot bread and indescribably wonderful mountain views. Meransen/Jochtal skiing area
In winter Meransen changes into a skiing area, ideal for families and those who love a cosy atmosphere. With the new 8-seater cabin lift, just a few minutes from the Bacherhof, you go straight up to 2,107 m, right in the middle of the Gitschberg ski paradise with its sunny pistes.
Just a few minutes from the Bacherhof by car is the Vals/Jochtal skiing area, while the Plose skiing area is just 30 minutes’ drive away.
With the Dolomiti Superski pass you have the choice of 1,200 km of pistes, including the Sella Ronda in the Dolomites. Right in the centre and high above everything
Meransen is centrally located. No matter where you want to go in South Tyrol, you are soon there. The Brenner-Modena autobahn is just 11 km away, as is the Bozen-Munich railway line.
There are also plenty of things to see just around the corner: the market town of Mühlbach, the Mühlbacher Klause (ruined castle) in Mühlbach, Rodeneck Castle with the Iwein frescoes, the loden museum in Vintl, the bishops’ city of Brixen and the impressive monastery of Neustift.
