Winter in Scena

Wild trails and unique lounges, still, rigid and covered by deep snow

This is how our guests experience one of the most popular summer hiking regions of South Tyrol during the winter season. The Alpine meadows, hamlets and forests below the Hirz massif are just the right places for anyone looking to discover something new.
Mild temperatures and sunshine characterize winter in the spa town of Merano/Meran, while perpetual ice lies above in the Schnalstal Glacier region. Snow and superbly prepared ski slopes suitable for beginners and experts alike can be found in all five winter sport areas in Merano and its surrounding areas, offering perfect conditions for skiing and winter sport activities, as well as just relaxing in the mild winter sun.

The ancient arcades (Laubengassen) of the spa town of Merano now serve as popular shopping areas, where bistros and restaurants offer typical South Tyrolean dishes and local wines. The Advent season is characterized by the traditional Christmas Markets, held beneath impressive fortresses and castles. Next to the Christmas market is the famous Terme Merano thermal bath complex, a wellness temple located right in the town center. Winter sports and children’s programs also help make winter vacations in South Tyrol/Südtirol an unforgettable experience for the entire family.
