Falzeben-Merano 2000

Falzeben is famous for its hiking and skiing area Merano 2000 as well as its alpine bob.

Falzeben extends at an altitude of about 1,600 m asl, high above Avelengo. This village is above all known as the valley station of the Falzeben funicular with its yellow gondolas taking hikers in summer and skiers in winter into the fabulous area of Merano 2000. Moreover Merano 2000 is a superlative cycling area, offering trails in every level of difficulty. By the way: Merano 2000 is also considered the recreation area of the inhabitants of Merano. Those who are interested in minerals can take a look at the mineral exhibition at the lower terminus.

Starting point for hikes is, however, also the parking lot (subject to charges) Falzeben, from where you can e.g. reach the Moschwald alpine pasture, the Rifugio Valcanova, the Waidmann pasture and the Kirchsteiger alpine pasture. Also a stage of the European long-distance hiking trail E5. To those, however, who aim higher, we recommend a mountain tour to the Monte Ivigna.

An absolute must-do: a ride with the summer bob-sled run Alpin Bob Merano 2000, the longest summer toboggan run of Italy. A real adventure, not only for kids.
