From ancient cultural monuments to the wonders of modern architecture: a stroll through Merano and environs brings you face to face with cultural treasures, unique in themselves. Narrow alleys straight from the Middle Ages, each with its tales of the good old times. Magnificent manors and stately castles concealing wealth of secrets to be discovered stand in harmony alongside modern style and joie de vivre within your grasp. Assembly rooms from the Imperial period beside the Merano thermal springs offer a contrast in style and yet complete the pleasant aspect of the townscape. And these are only a few examples.
