An excursion through the Algund Region
Visitors will find lots of attractions and a variety of activities and leisure options in and around Algund and Merano. The cultural features of this region offer a tasteful mix of the traditional and modern which will appeal to all connoisseurs of art and culture, and provide holidaymakers with new and exciting insights into Algund as a holiday destination.
The villages of Rablà and Parcines lie close to your Algund holiday resort. Parcines has a typewriter museum devoted to the life of Peter Mitterhofer, the local man who invented this ground-breaking device. Meanwhile, all railway enthusiasts will not want to miss the Train World museum at Rablà. Each museum offers a reduced entrance fee for all visitors using an AlgundCard.
Via this cable car, you can reach the village of Aschbach and the San Vigilio High Plateau in a very short time – and at a reduced price if you have an AlgundCard! On arrival at the Aschbach mountain station (at a height of 1,342 metres) you will find access to numerous hiking and mountain bike trails which offer fantastic panoramic views.
Even in this vibrant spa town itself, you can still secure many more discounts. You can experience history vividly conveyed in the Jewish Museum or the Women's Museum, while the Kunst Meran (Merano Arte) in the town arcades – which combines both museum and gallery – regularly stages a variety of different exhibitions. The private museum at the Castel Rametz is also well worth a visit.
