Summer Promenade

The Summer in Merano can be quite hot: along the Summer Promenade you can cool down in the shadow of huge trees along the river

On the southern side of the Passirio river, from the Ponte della Posta bridge towards Val Passiria, there is a popular promenade which is lined by huge trees and various plant species. The Summer Promenade boasts plants such as Lebanon cedars, sequoias, poplars and pines from different climatic zones. Particularly impressive is the course of the promenade from the city park to the savaged water meadow - the more you walk to the east, the more you get closer to the Passirio riverbed and its natural riverside.

The Merano Summer Promenade (Sommerpromenade) has been established in 1866 and takes promenaders along the Passirio river to the Ponte Romano (Roman Bridge). At the entrance to the promenade there is also a monument reminding on the stays of the Empress Elizabeth at Merano. At the same time this monument represents the end of the “Sissi Path”, starting at Trauttmansdorff Castle.
