VÖLLAN / LANA IN THE MERAN COUNTRYSIDE
Nestled amongst picturesque vineyards and orchards, chestnut groves, green meadows and mountain forests lies the idyllic climatic spa town of Völlan, above Lana.
SPA TOWN OF MERAN
Recognised as a spa town since the 19th century, Meran is located in a climatically favoured basin, surrounded by Texelgruppe mountains of up to 3,337 metres high. Four valleys come together in the Meran basin: the Eschtal and the Vinschgau along with the Passeiertal and the Ultental valleys. The mild climate allows palms, bay trees and many other Mediterranean plants to flourish, giving the area an Alpine-Mediterranean flair that has made it a popular holiday destination.
