Unmissable highlights at a glance.
Flower festival – it blossoms and sprouts
It is as much a part of the Etsch Valley spring as the ringing of the bells at Easter: It’s the Flower Festival! One of the highlights of the festival is the farmers’ “mile of tastes.” Around 40 farmer stalls and 4 catering stalls serve their own genuine products, all bearing the “Red Rooster” seal of quality and presented by the producers in person.
The Merano WineFestival, where connoisseurs of fine tipple flock in droves and where wines of both local origin and international renown are served up. In recent years the WineFestival has reached fame in South Tyrol and beyond. Bottoms up, then!
When the golden season draws to a close, that’s when the magic of Christmas is at the doors. It may sound a little on the cheesy side, but when you stroll along the Meran promenade, smell the sweet scents of Christmas and savour the tempting treats (yes, they have mulled wine), it truly is magical. Even for us old South Tyrolean hands, it’s always magical! And a hot mulled wine or two always helps to survive the run-up to Christmas.
