Hotel Innerhofer is not only a starting point for many hiking trips, but also a popular base from where you can undertake day excursions.

Visiting Castle Trauttmansdorff near Meran and the Museum for Tourism right beside it is simply a must! As part of the castle you’ll find the Botanic Gardens of Castle Trauttmansdorff – one of the most beautiful garden parks in Europe, which allows visitors a botanical world tour in a circular route.

You can crown these excursions by visiting the spa town itself and walk along the Passer River. The Meran promenades are a perfect place to stroll.

The historic centre with its Lauben dating back to the Middle Ages is ideal for shopping or enjoying a drink at one of the cafes or pubs outdoors. In the centrally located spa facility you can relax while enjoying a sauna, some Wellness or catching up on your fitness programme. 

Day excursions into the surrounding area

There are some beautiful excursions to be undertaken into the surrounding area, such as the Upper Etsch region along the Wine Road, the Vinschgau with its ancient Roman churches and chapels...or the two historic cities of Bozen and Trient.
