South Tyrol vacation number four but - surprise - this time not in Schenna/Meran but in Kaltern! I think Kaltern is a quite decent spot for a one week hiking holiday as you can do about 6, 7 hikes starting directly in town. If you want to stay longer, you’ll probably find yourself driving around as your hiking options are depleted… Kaltern → Around the Lake → Kaltern Komoot Link Read more

South Tyrol III

Well, … Corona and pretty unsteady weather have caused that we (once again) spent a week in South Tyrol near Meran. Even here, the weather was not as sunny and warm as you would expect for the area at this time of the year. But, it was fine in total… Schenner and Maiser Waalweg to Meran ? I have really managed to forget where these photos were taken. For some reason I was also too lazy to create a GPX track, and … well, you can see what happens :D Read more

South Tyrol Reloaded

Last year’s Christi-Himmelfahrt-weekend-trip to South Tyrol was so enjoyable that we decided to do the very same thing again. So we selected (almost) the same weekend, the same place, the same hotel, even the same room. So this trip felt a bit like coming home ;-) Luckily, we learned from last year’s catastrophic Brenner motorway traffic jams and set off pretty early (4:30 am). We reached our destination Scena (Schenna) already at 8 am without losing only one second in heavy traffic - so getting up early was totally worth the effort! Read more

South Tyrol

Another short vacation over the long “Christi Himmelfahrt” weekend - this time to Scena (Schenna) in South Tyrol, near Merano (Meran). I haven’t been to South Tyrol for about 20 years and didn’t remember how beautiful this stretch of land is. Definatly a place to come back soon… The only huge drawback I see is the horriffic journey from Munich via Austria (Inntal motorway is limited to 100km/h), the Brenner motorway (the epicenter of traffic jams), and crowded side roads to the final destination.
