History that lives on …
History lives on in many smaller details. A fleeting moment is untouchable – what remains is history. Unique, captivating and exciting!
History can be glimpsed in many historical buildings, inscriptions, encounters, South Tyrol’s exceptional nature and much more. Further history must be written anew. Step back in time at the Merano and Environs region, a true vacation paradise.
