The Meran High Mountain Road is one of the most beautiful high-Alpine circular hiking routes in Europe. At a length of 100 kilometres, it surrounds South Tyrol’s largest nature park, the Texel Group Nature Park, at an altitude of approximately 1,400 metres. There are constantly altitude differences to be overcome from 100 metres. The Texel Group is situated between the Italian-Austrian border, the Meran basin, the Passeier Valley and the Schnals Valley.
The Meran High Mountain Road is divided into a Northern and a Southern route. The northern part of the mountain road has its peak at the Eisjöchl, which is at an altitude of 2,895 metres. In the southern realm, you can reach an altitude of 1,839 metres above sea level at the Hochganghaus Hut.
Via the Adige Valley, take the MeBo expressway to the Algund exit and further on Vellau.
Coming from Vinschgau, Vellau/Algund is just before Merano.
