Located on a sunny southern slope at an altitude of 1,400 metres above sea level, Meransen/Maranza is a true holiday paradise. The village overlooks the two valleys Eisacktal and Pustertal and offers great panoramic views of the majestic Dolomites in the distance. During the winter months, glistening snow covers both the mountains and the valleys, while the summer turns the meadows a lush green and the mountain peaks a mystic blue. In fact, the South Tyrolean people themselves appreciate the village very much for its extraordinary views. The ski resort and Alpine region Gitschberg Jochtal offers endless opportunities to either relax or get active outdoors. You will certainly be free to flexibly spend your time on a variety of activities, whether they include skiing in winter, hiking in summer, or wellness treatments year-round. Meransen/Maranza is definitely worth a visit and always worth your while!
A number of lovely villages and beautiful towns are located in the surroundings of Meransen/Maranza. By cable car or private vehicle you can reach Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria, a charming little village right at the entrance of the Pustertal valley. In addition, the neighbouring village of Vals/Valles is just a stone’s throw away. During the winter months, the two villages are connected by funicular railway in the ski resort Gitschberg Jochtal.
It takes twenty minutes by car to reach Brixen/Bressanone (‘the Bishop’s town’). Alternatively, the town can be reached by public transport: first, the cable car down to Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria and from there the bus to Brixen/Bressanone. Using public transport is sustainable and environmentally friendly and will save you the trouble of finding a free parking space in town.
Also other major towns such as Bruneck/Brunico at the foot of Mount Kronplatz or our province’s capital Bozen/Bolzano can easily and cheaply be reached by bus or train. Our town are worth visiting for their unique Alpine-Mediterranean flair, architecture, impressive museums, and, last but not least, the great shopping opportunities they offer.
