Meran is known for its mild winters. This fact has attracted winter vacationers for decades, but Meran and Lana have much more to offer than the climate.
The historic spa town with its Art Nouveau facades is also famous for its walks and promenades. And Lana, with its many churches, monasteries and castles, stretches from the mountains around Völlan to the apple orchards in the wide lower valley.
Around 20 km to the south is the South Tyrolean capital of Bolzano, with many museums and galleries, cafes and shops. The most popular attraction is the 5000-year old prehistoric ice mummy Ötzi, on display in the Museum of Archaeology.
