insider tips
Hiking in the alpine region Rio Pusteria

Let’s put it this way: summer, Maranza and hiking - the three things simply belong together. Valles, Maranza and the Fundres Valley are all top destinations for hikers. The absolute calm of the mountains, the unspoilt nature and rustic idyll of the alpine pastures, and refuge huts with magnificent views mean that every hike becomes an unforgettable experience.

Nordic walking

Yes, the Bacherhof loves the good life! We recommend Nordic walking as a balanced way of getting a fitness kick. In Meransen there are several panoramic Nordic walking trails that you can discover either alone or in a group. All you need is the urge to exercise in the fresh air, a pair of trainers and sticks. We will be happy to loan you the Nordic walking sticks.

E-Mountain biking

The sunny plateau where Meransen lies is the perfect base for all kinds of mountain biking adventures. It doesn't matter whether you're an experienced pro or a leisure cyclist - there’s a route for everyone here. Take the forest tracks up to the high alpine pastures, zip down the mountain on downhill runs, or go for a leisurely pedal down in the valley along the popular South Tyrol cycle path. So, what are you waiting for? Time to get in the saddle!

E-Bikes available for rent against an additional charge.

South Tyrol Balance

The Balance events that are offered in South Tyrol in spring are an especially good way of making the very most of springtime in the mountains in Meransen. With this programme, the Gitschberg-Jochtal alpine region has completely dedicated itself to health, balance and renewal. The itinerary includes valuable experiences of nature with a wealth of ideas for greater serenity and strength.
