MORE THAN JUST MOUNTAINS AND DUMPLINGS

As a small Italian village with a huge wine-growing tradition, Marling is obviously a congenial destination for gourmets and connoisseurs, but anyone with an eye for beauty will also get their money’s worth here. Lovers of art, culture and music are in for a real treat here in the Meran area!

Music

Which brings us to the music landscape of Meran, and its amazing variety. Merano Jazz and the Südtirol Jazz festival attract throngs of visitors from near and far. Classical music performances are a year-round attraction, but if there is an event music enthusiasts should not miss, it’s the Südtirol Festival. Previously known as Meran Music Weeks, it has earned its spot in the international classical music panorama. Festivals such as Transart and Asfaltart round off the offer with something for the younger hearts.

historical sights

Medieval castles and manors are numerous, but by no means the only historical sights South Tyrol has to offer – nor the most ancient. For example, why not visit Ötzi the Ice Man at the Archaeological Museum in Bozen? Culture vultures will also appreciate the wide choice of museums, which run the gamut from the typewriter museum to the Jewish museum and from the Women’s museum to the K.u.K. Bad Egart Museum in Partschins, with its collection of artefacts dating back to the Habsburg monarchy. A visit to the latter might easily take an interesting turn, as the Bad Egart Museum is run by the owner of Onkel Taa, possibly the most picturesque restaurant in the area, which specialises in escargots dishes… and distinctive décor.
