The area’s mild climate is what attracted Empress Sissi to the spa town of Meran. The palms in the valley and snow on the peaks provide a fascinating contrast. It really only becomes wintry at the nearby ski resorts of Meran 2000, Schnals or in Pfelders or on the Schwemmalm in Ulten. These ski resorts are smaller, suitable for families and far away from mass tourism.
For those who don’t fancy skiing, why not spend a relaxing day at the thermal spa and afterwards take a stroll through the enchanting Christmas market?
