The Tappeinerweg trail
Our hotel offers direct access to the Tappeinerweg trail. Thanks to its sunny location, it can be enjoyed all year round.

The Meran high altitude trail
The Meran high altitude trail is one of the most beautiful circular hiking trails in the Alpine region. It offers not only impressive views of the Meran region, Val Venosta/Vinschgau, and the countryside as far as Bolzano but also insights into the world of South Tyrolean mountain farmers. Experience the diversity of the mountain world in the Texel Group Nature Park; here, you hike between dense forests, along rugged rock faces, and past mountain pastures. Various refreshment stops invite you to stop and enjoy yourself.

If your hiking preferences lean toward the gentle and level, a must-do excursion during your stay at the Hotel Wessobrunn is the Algund Waalweg trail, along an ancient irrigation channel.
