The tourist vocation of Merano is tied hand in glove with the history of its SPA establishment. The mild climate favorable for treatment of various diseases fostered the installation of a SPA town in 1836.
The establishment soon became the main tourist attraction, and it is still nowadays. With a surface of 50,000 square meters, it is one of the largest and complete SPA centers in South Tyrol.
It is easily reachable from Hotel Weingarten, thanks to the MEBO highway that connects Bolzano to Merano.
