Spring in Meran

An explosion of colours

In spring, the diversity of Merano's floral and plant life really comes into its own.
Spring begins early in Merano, already at the end of February, the first flowers of forsythia show, in mid-March, you can already enjoy magnificent flowerbeds. The apple blossoms are in full bloom at the beginning to the middle of April, unfortunately a nature-long spectacle of only a short duration that extends over kilometres. In May, the many Mediterranean flowers, plants and trees then explode properly: everywhere it sprouts, it blooms and the scent of this splendor is everywhere in the air. This is most probably felt in the botanical gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle or on a walk through the narrow streets of Merano's residential district of Obermais, in the heart of which lies Hotel Juliane. The mountains are still snow-covered, but on the slopes below about 1,500 meters above sea level, it is wonderful to walk, hike and enjoy the sun in the balmy air.
